The Cedar Springs Knights of Columbus Council 15889 completed a successful fundraising drive for an ultrasound machine to be placed at the Alpha Family Center in Cedar Springs. The goal was to raise $25,000 to cover half of the cost for the machine and additional resources for supplies and training. The total raised locally was $25,300. A special thanks to those who made this a reality.  The cost of the machine was $34,000, with half of the money being provided by the fundraising efforts locally and other half from the Supreme Office of the Knights of Columbus in New Haven, CT. 

There will be an open house at the Alpha Family Center on October 23, 2021, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. The open house will give the public an opportunity to see the renovated space and the ultrasound machine.   The center is located at 6 N First Street in Cedar Springs.
