The Cedar Springs Lions Club, with the help of the Sand Lake Eagles, helped the Santa Claus Girls by delivering gifts for many boys and girls, on Saturday, December 20. In all, 116 families in the area received gifts to make Christmas time a little brighter.

They help fund eye exams, glasses, hearing aids, and more. Each year they hold fundraisers, including the Red Flannel Festival Lumber Jack supper and several spring pancake breakfasts, to support their work. To find out more about them, join them at one of their meetings held the first and third Tuesday of each month, from 6 to 8 p.m., at the North Kent Senior Center, 44 N. Park Street, Cedar Springs.

The Red Flannel Festival delivered a Community Share check for $750 to the Tri-County Eagles #4467 club for the volunteer efforts at the 2013 Red Flannel Festival Grand Parade.
The Red Flannel Festival is proud the annual Community Share Program generated over $5000.00 for area local non-profits last year. The Red Flannel Board of Directors and Chairpersons are working hard to ensure the success of the 75th Red Flannel celebrations.
“The Red Flannel Festival’s success and growth has been phenomenal,” says RFF President Michele Andres. “Staffing demands will out-number volunteers and we are turning to you, the non-profit community, for assistance. We are proud and excited we have been able to donate almost $30,000 to non-profits in the area with our Community Share Program!”
Andres added that as a completely volunteer, independent non-profit organization, the Red Flannel Festival is keenly aware of the challenges organizations face in fundraising. “Our mission is to encourage collaboration and positive economic growth for all of the area’s non-profit organizations,” she says.
If your non-profit organization is interested in participating in the Community Share Program, please contact the Festival office at 616-696-2662 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
