July fourth fun


Photo by Michelle Adrianse

The past week has been a great one for family, friends, food, and lots of fun! We asked you to send us your photos and show us what you did for fun over the Fourth of July holiday, and you sent us some great photos!

Michelle Adrianse took some great fireworks photos. Thanks for sending them to us!

Pictured are Adam Callis and Morgan Callis trying to escape the onslaught.

Joe and Janet VanDyke sent us a great photo showing us what they did. “What do you do for fun over the Independence Day holiday?” wrote Janet. “At our house we exploded a watermelon with rubber bands. With everyone taking turns and two additional trips to purchase more rubber bands, it took us almost 2 hours and 595 rubber bands before the watermelon gave into the pressure.”

In the photo you can see their son-in-law, Adam Callis, and granddaughter, Morgan Callis, trying to escape the onslaught. They were placing rubber bands on the watermelon when it exploded!

Janet said they saw the slow motion videos of something like this on AFV and decided to try it themselves. Thanks for sending it our way!

and below are some we took at the Sand Lake parade. It looks like everyone had great fun!

The Cedar Springs JV Red Hawk girls basketball team hosted Forest Hills Northern on Thursday, January 13.
Cedar Springs started out slow and fell behind early in the first quarter 10-4. Early foul trouble and turnovers really hurt the Red Hawks. They went to the locker room at half time behind 24-14.
The Red Hawks came back in the third quarter scoring 14 points to pull within 6 points and end the quarter 34-28. They worked hard in the fourth quarter but continued foul trouble hurt the comeback effort and the Red hawks fell to the Huskies 43-35.
Allie Veltkamp led the scoring for the Red Hawks. Also contributing to the scoring were Jeanette Sukstas, Sommer VanDyke and Abby VanDusen.
The JV Red Hawks game against Kent City on January 18 was canceled due to a snow day, but they will host Wayland on January 20..
