Is the winter weather making you feel trapped in your home? You now have a reason to get out and socialize with your neighbors. Senior Citizen/Retirees are getting together on the third Thursday of every month for a luncheon through the organization of the Cedar Springs Area Parks and Recreation Department. These luncheons begin in the fall and rotate each month to one of the partner orgnaizations of the department.

The January luncheon will take place at the Algoma Township hall on Thursday, January 20, at 11:30 a.m. The cost is only $5 per person and includes a catered lunch and guest speaker. The guest speaker for January is David Huang. David is a Sand Lake resident who has competed in Art Prize 2009 and 2010. In the 2010 year he was featured in the entrance to the Grand Rapids Public Museum and received enough votes to put him in the top 25 of all the pieces.
