Medication Take Back Event – 10/23/21

medtakeback

Opioid overdoses continue to be one of the greatest public health crises facing families and communities across the county and here in Michigan.

In 2018, there were more deaths from drug overdoses than car crashes, according to state representatives. Many of these deaths are the result of someone taking pain medication illegally, without a prescription.

Medication Take Back events provide safe locations for disposing of unused or expired medications while also protecting communities and the environment.

Research shows many people do not properly dispose of their medications, increasing the potential of them being diverted into the community and waterways. Medication Take Back events serve to educate the community on how to safely use and store medication as well as offer the opportunity to dispose of unused and expired prescription medications. This includes: over-the-counter medications, liquids, needles, inhalers and vitamins.

Holland Hospital is proud to partner with Community Mental Health of Ottawa County, the Holland Department of Public Safety, the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and the Michigan Opioid Prescribing Engagement Network (OPEN) to host a Medication Take Back Event on Saturday, October 23 from 10 AM – 2 PM. This is the third year Holland Hospital has participated in this community event. During the 2019 Medication Take Back Day, the hospital collected 532 pounds of medication and 30lbs of needles.

To avoid unnecessary contact, this year’s event will be set up as a drive-thru in Holland Hospital’s main Visitor parking lot. Individuals will be able to dispose medication and needles confidentially.

Approved opioid collectors — primarily pharmacies and law enforcement agencies ­— and special take back events are the safest and most environmentally friendly means of disposing unneeded medications.

Please join us in making a difference in our community.

Art Pop-up to Benefit Grand Haven Schools Foundation

Art at the Yard 2021. Saturday. October 16. D Baker & Son Lumber. 

poster

After a year’s hiatus, Art at the Yard is back on Saturday, October 16, from 5-8 pm at Baker Lumber (720 Pennoyer, Grand Haven). 
 
The lumberyard will have the large bay doors at either end of the facility fully open to provide an open-air environment for the return of this annual pop-up event that benefits the Grand Haven Schools Foundation (GHSF). The 2020 event was cancelled due to COVID.
 
Patrons are encouraged to dress for the weather.

Art at the Yard draws scores of artists and hundreds of patrons to raise thousands of dollars for the schools’ foundation’s work. The show and sale features artwork in a wide range of media, live music by Cat Fish and the Man, and a cash bar. A $10 suggested donation at the door and 10% of artists’ sales benefit GHSF.

The event is organized by the Lakeshore Visual Arts Collective (LVAC)—a nonprofit collective that brings innovative arts events to unexpected places on the lakeshore.

LVAC transforms local spaces into one-night art happenings. The model brings together artists, collectors, nonprofits, and businesses in partnerships that bring benefits to all involved. LVAC donates 100% of door revenues and 10% of artists’ sales to the event’s nonprofit partner.

“We really missed our friends at Baker Lumber and GHSF last year. And we’re glad to be back together. Art at the Yard is a great example of how LVAC brings together businesses, nonprofits, and artists to create good in the community, to build a sustainable artist community, and to foster a community of art collectors here on the lakeshore,” says LVAC founder and chair Maggie Bandstra.

“We are honored to once again be chosen as the beneficiary of the Art at the Yard event, and we are excited to continue our partnership with LVAC to help support community artists,” said Sue Bays, executive director of the GHSF. “The funds GHSF receives from this yearly event directly impact students by allowing us to fund preschool scholarships for three- and four-year old children most in need. The funds will also be used to help further our mission by supporting critical early learning initiatives for students in kindergarten through fourth grade.”

The annual event is made possible by the generosity of hosts D. Baker & Son Lumber Company, a fifth-generation, family-owned, landmark business in Grand Haven.

Art at the Yard 2021 is also underwritten by event sponsors Huntington Bank, Bluewest Properties, Grand Haven Area Community Foundation, Adam Hass Fine Homebuilding, Bosgraaf Construction, Scholten Fant, and J-Dub’s Market and Wine Shop.

Fall Fest Returns to Downtown Holland, Holland Farmers Market on October 8-9

HOLLAND, MI – After being cancelled last year due to Covid, Downtown Holland’s annual Fall Fest is back…and this year is bigger and better than ever before! Downtown Holland and the Holland Farmers Market have partnered with the Holland Visitors Bureau, Tulip Time, and Windmill Island Gardens to expand this year’s Fall Fest offerings. During this two-day event held Friday October 8 and Saturday, October 9, the entire community is invited to celebrate everything there is to love about fall, with professional pumpkin carving, children’s activities, family hayrides, community tulip planting, an artisan market at Windmill Island Gardens, fall walking tours, and more! Fall Fest is proudly sponsored by Crown Motors, member of West Michigan Honda, with in-kind support from Biggby Coffee, Bowerman Blueberries Farm Market, the Courtyard Marriott, and Fris Supply Shop.

Fall Fest kicks on Friday, October 8 with Community Tulip Planting from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm, hosted by Tulip Time. Visitors and community members can visit the Tulip Time website (www.tuliptime.com) to sign up for a time slot to help plant 75,000 of Holland’s famous tulip bulbs at Window On The Waterfront in Downtown Holland! All volunteers will be treated to complimentary donuts from Bowerman’s Blueberry Market and coffee from Biggby Coffee of Holland. Gardening gloves are recommended, but all other tools and instructions will be provided onsite.

Fall Fest continues on Friday, October 8 with eight of the nation’s best professional pumpkin carvers, including Food Network alumni, appearing in Downtown Holland from 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm. The carvers will spend the afternoon and evening carving jack-o-lanterns all along 8th Street in Downtown Holland. And trust us, these aren’t the same jack-o-lanterns you’ll see on everyone’s doorstep on Halloween! At 7:00 pm, the jack-o-lanterns will be lit from within and will remain on display until 10:00 pm that night for visitors to explore while strolling through Downtown Holland.

On Saturday, October 9, the professional pumpkin carvers will appear at the Holland Farmers Market from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm, carving incredible 3D sculptures onsite. Children can also paint their own pumpkins to bring home during that time for just $1.00 per pumpkin, with all painting supplies provided by Fris Supply Shop in Downtown Holland. Market vendors Visser Farmers will also be offering hayrides from the Holland Farmers Market to Downtown Holland and back again from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm. Hayrides are just $3.00 per person for the round trip.

The Holland Farmers Market will be open from 8:00 am – 2:00 pm that day, stocked full thanks to the bountiful autumn harvest. Visitors will find seasonal décor items, including pumpkins, gourds, mums, and corn shocks at the Market, along with apples of every variety, squash, Brussels sprouts, potatoes, carrots, and other root vegetables. And as always, you can pick up bread and baked goods, farm-raised and fresh caught meat, honey and maple syrup, and a wide variety of specialty foods and beverages while you’re there.

The Community Tulip Planting will continue on Saturday morning at Window On The Waterfront from 8:00 am – 12:00 pm. Tulip Time will also be offering guided fall walking tours throughout Downtown Holland that day from 10:30 am – 1:30 pm. Each tour is approximately an hour and a half long and covers one and a half miles. Tour participants can enjoy the beauty of Downtown Holland while learning the dynamic past and present of Holland. Tour highlights include Hope College, Dimnent Chapel, Pillar Church, Centennial Park, and unique architecture sites. Tours are $25 per person and tickets must be purchased in advance at www.tuliptime.com.

Tulip Time will also be hosting an all-new Artisan Market at Windmill Island Gardens from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm as part of Fall Fest on Saturday, October 9. Over 50 local artisans and crafters will be selling their works as part of this juried show. Visitors can shop for hand-crafted jewelry, home décor, artwork, clothing, specialty foods, and more! Entry to the Artisan Market is just $5.00 per person, which also includes the opportunity to tour the beautiful gardens at Windmill Island and to visit the Dutch attractions, including the DeZwaan Windmill, the historic Dutch carousel, the miniature Dutch village, and much more. Professionally-carved pumpkins will also be on display throughout Windmill Island Gardens during the Artisan Market.

The Fall Fest fun continues in Downtown Holland on Saturday, October 9 too! The professional pumpkin carvers will return to 8th Street from 12:00 pm – 7:00 pm that day to continue carving 3D pumpkin displays. Watch these talented artists at work all afternoon long, then be sure to return later on in the evening from 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm to see their finished masterpieces!

See the scenic roads of Muskegon County in all their autumn glory. Soar over a canopy of fall colors, see the sites, snap some “selfies” and discover our local shops, restaurants, attractions and more! Contest entries will be gathered by social media photo check-ins at the designated stops. Stop in to the Muskegon Union Depot and White Lake Train Depot to pick up a map. Maps will also be available to download from our website. Instructions to win prizes: Snap a photo or selfie at designated stops on the map. Share the photo with a check-in on Facebook and/or Instagram. Include the hashtag #D2D21. Make sure the setting is “public” so we can find your photo entry. The more stops and check-in photos you share, the more entries you receive. Send one Facebook message to Visit Muskegon; simply say “D2D 21” (this way we can contact you if you are a winner!)
