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 department features partnerships with Algoma, Courtland, Nelson and Solon townships, the City of Cedar Springs and the Cedar Springs Public School District.
The February luncheon will take place at the Courtland Township hall on Thursday, February 17th at 11:30am. The cost is only $5 per person and includes a catered lunch and guest speaker. Kevin Pike, funeral director at Bliss-Wittes and Pike Funeral Home, will be the speaker and discussing pre-arranged funerals, cremation and some interesting myths vs. facts. He is an engaging speaker and will be very informative on a varitey of topics.
