The Cedar Springs Rotary Club recently presented framed newspaper articles to the Girl’s Cross Country Team and the Boy’s Soccer Team. Rotary participates in Youth Leadership Training and Scholarships, which was evident in these two teams’ outstanding success during the 2010 fall season. Both teams broke school records and ranked at the top locally, regionally, and in the state.
“Knowing that positive leadership is necessary in order for a team to experience success, our Rotary Club wanted to thank the coaches and players for their hard work and sacrifices. Positive leadership and team work allow our entire school district and community to celebrate,” said Gabrielle Warner, Rotary Club President.

New Year’s walk a winner

The 10th annual White Pine Trail New Year’s Resolution Walk on January 1 was an overwhelming success, according to Dave Heyboer, chairman of the Friends of the White Pine Trail.
“We had our biggest turnout ever, with 325 participants and 21 dogs!” remarked Heyboer. He said that it was more people than they had anticipated.
The group met at the Rotary Pavilion in Rockford, and trekked north on the trail to 13 Mile Road about 10 a.m. and then headed back, where they enjoyed hot dogs, snacks and hot coffee.
Although the forecasts for the day were less than stellar, Heyboer said the weather was great for the event. “I was concerned the weather and trail conditions would be lousy, but at 10 am when we gathered for the picture and the group start, we had blue sky and about 45 degrees,” he commented.
Heyboer is grateful to those who made the event a success, and also thanked those who participated. He also had a message for those that didn’t make it. “If you missed it, you really missed it! Plan on being there next year!” he said.
