The Post goes to Haiti


N-Post-goes-to-Haiti

 

“On jou!” That’s Creole for hello, the language that is spoken in Haiti, where Jan Malmo, recently retired teacher at Tri County Schools, traveled recently on a mission trip, and took a Post with her. She was able to work with children and teachers in a school in Les Cayes for 3 days. Jan’s focus was to bring new ideas and teaching techniques to a small town in a third world country where they are open to everything because they have so little—little to no teacher training and little to no supplies.

Jan said they primarily teach by reciting. She felt blessed to be welcomed by so many eager Haitians in a country where any help is appreciated. She saw God at work in the loving spirits and fellowship of people she could not really talk to without an interpreter.

“It was an awesome trip and I hope to be able to go back annually with more teachers so more lives can be enriched (mine and theirs)!” she exclaimed.

Thanks for taking us with you, Jan!

The Post visits The Baths National Parks


Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands

N-Post-travels-to-Virgin-Islands

The Virgin Gorda Baths is a collection of massive granite boulders that lie in piles on the beach and is among the most spectacular natural wonders in the British Virgin Islands.

Michele and Doug Loper visited Virgin Gorda, BVI in February and hiked a trail, leading to Devil’s Bay beach, through the huge rocks, caves, and pools which required some ducking down and maneuvering through crevasses, ladders and bridges. Michele said it was very scenic and remarkable! Thanks for taking the Post with you on your adventure!

Dog loves the Post


N-dog-caught-reading-PostIt appears that it’s not only people that love the Post—man’s best friend thinks its pretty cool, too!

Noah Bayink, 7, of Cedar Springs, sent us an email and told us that his family caught their two-year-old Chihuahua, Willy, reading the Post! We wonder what section is his favorite? Perhaps he’s looking for a friend in Critter Corner, or looking for a girlfriend in Pet of the Week. Whatever he’s reading, we hope he enjoys it. We are both a pet and family-friendly publication!

Thanks for sharing that with us, Noah!

The Post travels to Pasadena


N-POST-goes-to-Pasadena

The Cedar Springs Post travelled to Pasadena, California earlier this month, with Gary and Barb Woodhull. They were “with a few close friends” in the stands along the Rose Bowl Parade route. Their grandson, Bryant Stock, marched in the Carmel, Indiana High School Marching band. The band was invited to march in the Rose Parade because they were the 2012 State of Indiana Champions and Band of America National Champions.

Gary and Barb were able to tour two of the locations to watch the floats being decorated. And no, they did not have tickets to the Rose Bowl game!

Thanks so much for taking us with you to Pasadena!

The Post goes to Kentucky


N-Kentucky-dinoN-Kentucky-cavernsDorothy Sprague and family, of Gowen and Kent City, recently took the Post on an adventure with them to Kentucky.

“We started out in Gowen, and then went on to Kentucky to the Squire Boone Caverns, and of course the Post was with us,” wrote Dorothy. “Then it was on to Dinosaur World in Kentucky. As you can see, the T-Rex was after the Post but we all got away safe! We made a few stops in Tennessee and even a flea market, but the Post and our family made it back to Michigan safe and sound.”

Sounds like fun, Dorothy! Thanks for taking us with you!
