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!

Drop off your toys at the Post


-N-Toys-for-tots-TrainLogo

We’ve been getting some great toys here at the Post for Toys for Tots—keep them coming! We love partnering with you to provide toys for kids in our greater community who might otherwise do without. We will collect them through the end of next week. So don’t delay!

Toys for Tots is a volunteer organization whose goal is to collect new, unwrapped toys for kids 0-16, and distribute them to children who would not otherwise receive a gift during the holiday season. Toys for teens are especially needed.

Just bring a new, unwrapped toy to our office at 36 E. Maple Street in Cedar Springs, Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. If you can’t make that time, call us to make other arrangements.

Together we can make this Christmas special for many children!

Don and Ruth Ann Armstrong, longtime Tiger fans, visited their son Dr. Dustin D. Armstrong (a 1996 graduate of Tri County High School) and his fiance’, Vicki Wong, in Boston. While there, they attended the Red Sox Championship parade, and this is how they watched it—with their noses buried in the Cedar Springs Post!

The Post goes to Yellowstone


Cedar Springs Police Chief Roger Parent and his wife, Linda, recently took a trip to Yellowstone Park in Wyoming. To show his Cedar Springs pride, Roger had Linda take a photo of him with a Post in front of the east entrance. He’s even wearing his Cedar Café t-shirt.

This was Roger’s first trip to Yellowstone. He said one of the highlights of the trip was watching a mother grizzly and her three cubs chase the wolves away from their bison kill. The bison that was killed was about 300 yards off and the bears and wolves all came to within 150 yards to a small river near the paved roadway. “Between a good camera and binoculars it was interesting to watch,” he remarked. He also got some photos of a black bear that was about 40 yards away.

Thanks, Roger, for taking us with you!
