Post travels to Shipshewana


Hannah, 10, and her sister Hailey, 8, pose with The POST.

The Post recently traveled with the Dempsey family, of Solon Township, to Shipshewana, Indiana.

Hannah, 10, her sister Hailey, 8, mom Kathy, and grandma Joyce Petersen stayed over night at the Blue Gate Hotel, where they swam a lot. They had fun at the petting zoo, did lots of shopping at the flea market, and enjoyed lots of good food. They waited to go on a horse and buggy ride, but the line was too long, so they went back to their hotel, and lo and behold, a carriage was parked right in front of the hotel! So the girls got their Cinderella carriage ride after all!

Thanks so much for taking us with you!

The Post travels to West Virginia


_n-post-travels-west-virginia-reedfcSteve and Judy Reed, of Cedar Springs, traveled to Summerville, West Virginia over Labor Day weekend with their grandson, Landon Prater, 11, and Steve’s sister, Sandy Martin, to move her back home. While there they visited some of the sites around the area, including the Summerville Reservoir, the Gauley River National Recreation Area, and the famous New River Gorge and New River Gorge Bridge, which is also part of the National Park Service.

The New River Gorge Bridge is the longest steel span in the western hemisphere and the third highest in the United States. Previous to the bridge being built in 1977, it took 40 minutes to get across the gorge in the Appalachian Mountains, and the only way was by traveling a pretty scary long, narrow, winding road down one side and back up the other. The Reeds took that road, but don’t think they would like to do it again! It now takes less than a minute to get across the gorge with the bridge.
