A project planned for many years became a reality last Saturday, May 13, with the grand opening celebration of the new Cedar Springs Community Library, located in the “Heart of Cedar Springs” at the corner of Main and W. Maple St.

Sue Harrison, Master of Ceremonies, introduced the event by thanking the dozens of organizations and countless individuals who have been working on the Town Square, which includes the new library, a Veteran’s Clock Tower, a bridge across Cedar Creek, a steel dragonfly sculpture, and the historic flowing well.

“So much has been done already, but in order to complete the vision, much more funding is needed through donations and pledges through the Community Building Development Team,” she added.

The Ceremony started with the American Legion Color Guard Glen Hill Post 287 raising the American flag and the State of Michigan Flag on the new flagpoles in front of the Library

Viet Nam veteran Dan Davis delivered the invocation, which was followed by the playing of the Star Spangled Banner and America the Beautiful by members of the Cedar Springs High School, under the direction of Ryan Miller and Adam Borst.

City Manager Michael Womack and Mayor Pro-tem Pam Conley spoke about the city planting a maple tree on the library grounds. Mayor Gerald Hall presented some special “Making a Difference” awards to Duane McIntyre, Kurt Mabie, Dale Larson, and Dean Wall for for their work on the “Heart of Cedar Springs” projects.

Louise King, member of the Library Board, gave some of the history of the library in Cedar Springs and introduced Cedar Springs Library Director Donna Clark, who spoke about the importance of the new library to the Cedar Springs Community.

“This is a very significant contribution to our community and one only being accomplished through a cooperative and caring group of people. Our community now has its own library where people of all ages can learn, share, gather, and celebrate for many years to come,” said Clark.

The Ribbon Cutting for the Library followed with many dignitaries present. They were Duane McIntyre, licensed builder; Solon Township Supervisor Bob Ellick; Cedar Springs Mayor Gerald Hall; Library Director Donna Clark; CS City Manager Michael Womack; Lakeland Library Coop Director Sandra Wilson; Claudia and Tom Mabie and Kurt Mabie, representatives of the Community Building Development Team.

Chamber of Commerce to hold pre-holiday open house


 

The Cedar Springs Area Chamber of Commerce is promoting a community-wide pre-holiday open house on Saturday, November 14.

According to Chamber President Perry Hopkins, they would like people to shop our community, and find out what Cedar Springs has to offer.

“The second weekend in November is the same weekend of opening day of (gun) deer season. On this weekend the majority of the people are hunting, shopping, or dining out. For some, this is when they start their Thanksgiving and Christmas shopping. There really is no need for people in the Cedar Springs Area to drive down to the bigger city to shop or dine out,” explained Hopkins.

He noted that there are a wide variety of stores to choose from, including an eclectic herbal tea shop, lumber/hardware store, two large farm stores, two antique stores, a video game store, two cell phone stores, two auto parts stores, a large grocery store, two ice cream shops, four dollar stores, a pool/water supply store, flooring store, ceramics and gift store, a custom shirt-making business, several pizza places, a home brew store, over a dozen fast food restaurants, at least five sit-down restaurants, a dozen places to get hair and nails done, the historic Kent Theatre, a new brewery and restaurant, and much more!

Watch next week’s Post with an advertisement for area specials on November 14.

Shop local, save money, and invest in your local community!

BUS-CS-Brewing

Cedar Springs Brewing Company held an open house on Red Flannel Day, to give residents a sneak peek inside. They served their homemade sodas and brats. They are still waiting, however, to finally get the go ahead to finally open.

“It was wonderful to see so many people turn out for our sneak peek open house,” said owner David Ringler. “We hope you enjoyed everything you saw, and please know there is more to come. We are still several weeks from opening as we await our permanent occupancy permit, Michigan Department of Agriculture approval and our final MLCC inspection.”

If you want to be informed, you can sign up for their emails on their website at www.csbrew.com. They are also taking orders for their Stammtisch Club at www.csbrew.com/stammtisch. Ringler said that members would be the first people invited in when the time comes.
