Fire Department purchases life-saving equipment

People living in Cedar Springs who suffer sudden cardiac arrest now have a better chance of survival, thanks to new equipment recently purchased by the Cedar Springs Fire Department.

The CS Fire Department held a spaghetti dinner fundraiser on March 8 to raise money for the LUCAS automatic chest compression device, which would help them give CPR to heart attack victims. The device was $15,000.

“This piece of equipment is costly but well worth the price,” noted Fire Chief Marty Fraser.

March 8 was the Wednesday evening that high winds blew through the area, and many areas were without power. That translated to people going out to dinner, including the fundraising spaghetti dinner at Big Boy.

“We had a large crowd and through the generosity of everyone, raised a sizable amount of money,” said Fraser. “We also had several anonymous donors contribute to our cause.”

The Fire Department made enough to purchase the equipment, and they put it into service on Tuesday evening, March 21. “I and the staff at the Fire Department are very grateful to the community and the surrounding areas for their generosity in making this a very successful project,” remarked Fraser.

Bursting Drama Bubbles


Girl Talk: Seventh grade student, Alyssa Shelagowski, bursts a “drama bubble”.

Girl Talk: Seventh grade student, Alyssa Shelagowski, bursts a “drama bubble”.

Girl Talk is a little more than half way through its third year as an after school club. The group meets 2-3 times per month throughout the school year. They’ve explored topics such as purpose, getting involved in the community, facing depression, exploring personal values, and dismissing drama – just to name a few.

When the girls meet, they do different activities, games, or just as the name implies – talk.

During the dismissing drama meeting this year, things got messy but oh so fun! The girls blew up balloons filling them with confetti and glitter, drew or wrote representations of their drama on the outside and then took turns bursting their drama bubbles. It proved to be a very therapeutic session!

The girls are still planning service projects for the spring.

A few ladies will be involved on February 11 with Solon Township’s Velzey Park Spaghetti Dinner fundraiser and they are hoping to get involved with the new library and other community events.
