CS Library hosts travelogue adventure series

N-Travelogue-1The Cedar Springs Public Library hosted the second of its four Travelogue Adventure programs November 9, at the Cedar Springs High School Auditorium, with 105 people attending. A big thanks go out to the Friends of the Cedar Springs Library, who sold and stamped tickets, and directed Travelogue traffic.

The program, sponsored by CS Manufacturing, Inc. of Cedar Springs, started at 7 p.m. with pre-show music at 6:30 p.m. performed by Alexis (age 17) and Ryan (14) Kaiserlian. The sister/brother team were discovered at the Kent Theatre Red Flannel Talent Show October 3rd and were invited to share their guitar and vocal music, mostly songs written by Alexis herself.

Then showtime! Long-time world traveler Buddy Hatton shared the look inside Iran, captured on film by his crew. Some of the footage reveals part of Iran that has never been seen before. Buddy focused on the people, their creativity, their heritage and their architecture. The glimpse of their children at play, real people interacting at the market, etc. made you realize that they are not so different from us.

Members of the Cedar Springs Lions Club, Art Probst, Jerry VanderWal, and Seth Baker-Donnan, brought refreshments donated by their Club for everyone to enjoy during intermission. Apple cider, lemonade, pumpkin cookies, rice crispy squares, chocolate chippers, and spice cookies never tasted so good!  Decaf coffee was provided by CSPS Superintendent Ron McDermed.

And a big prize—Family Fare of Cedar Springs gave away a Gift Card for $50 worth of free shopping in their store, thanks to Store Manager, Anne Pettey. Richard and Carol Kidder were the happy winners!

The motto of our Travelogue has become, “YOU and someone NEW.”  There will be prizes and pre-show music. Please consider coming to the next two travelogues, March 8 and April 12, and bring someone with you! School-age students are FREE with a paying adult ($8 for adult at the door or $12 for the last two tickets). Our goal is that Travelogue ticket sales and donations will generate enough money to pay for the series and bring in an overflow of dollars to channel toward our community’s dream—a new library facility.
