Fathers vs. players baseball fundraiser

The community is invited to attend the first ever Fathers vs. Players fundraiser community picnic, for Cedar Springs Baseball, on May 22 at 1 p.m. This family fun day will be held at the Cedar Springs Varsity baseball field, and will promote community awareness, support and raise money for off-season training for all high school baseball players.
Everyone is asked to bring their own picnic lunch, and there will be an area for barbecue grills. Vendors will conduct games with prizes, and some of the games include the dunk tank, putting green, bean bag games, a radar gun to check how fast you can throw and speed timing.
The main event will be a game between the high school players and their dads.
All youth players with the Cedar Springs Junior Ball League are encouraged to attend, and they will be asked to take their position on the field when the high school players take their positions. Everyone will be asked to “run the bases” when the game is over.
Individual players will be asking for donations. If you are interested in organizing, donating or sharing, please call Roger Louck at (616) 706-8599.

Community rummage sale to benefit senior all night party

Rent a space to help senior all night party for only $10

Would you like to help to provide a safe environment for our 2011 graduates to celebrate with one another without alcohol or drugs? One Cedar Springs graduating class suffered a tragedy on graduation night, and that was one too many.  Since then, parents of the seniors in the graduating class have worked hard to plan fun, safe activities for the kids on graduation night, and they depend on financial support from both businesses and the community through donations and fundraisers.

One way you can help this year’s class is to rent a space at the community garage sale set for Saturday, March 12. Rent a space for only $10 and keep 100 percent of the proceeds. You will be given a 10-feet by 10-feet area with one 8-foot table and chair. You may bring additional tables for your space. The sale will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the American Legion in downtown Cedar Springs. The event will be open to the public and advertised in local papers, flyers posted throughout the area, and it will be listed on Craig’s list. Deadline to register is Tuesday, March 1. Space is limited. For more info call Michele at (616) 696-9024 or email praxsls@hotmail.com.

With your support we will continue to provide a great event for our graduating seniors!
