Join the Silver Beach Carousel’s Founders’ Week festivities for all ages from June 24-28. This fun-filled week commemorates the 1891 founding of Silver Beach Amusement Park, home of the original Silver Beach Carousel.

“We always want to honor where we came from and how Silver Beach earned its name,” said Suz Schalon, president of the Silver Beach Carousel Society.

“Our visitors enjoy viewing the old wool bathing suits and pictures of the earliest attractions and displays of memorabilia from the park. We also have a display with two original Carousel horses, one restored and one showing its original carving and jewels.”

The Carousel House decor this summer is the Wizard of Oz Emerald City. During Founders’ Week, each daily theme pays tribute to the original local wizards, Louis Wallace and Logan Drake, who founded the amusement park which thrilled generations of visitors until its closing in 1971. Their legacy of making happy memories continues with these events:

Monday, June 24: Seniors’ “Yellow Brick Road” Day, noon to 5:00 p.m.
Seniors 60+ can enter an hourly drawing for a vintage-themed candle and purchase tokens with a buy-one/get-one discount (limit two per person). Share your memories of attending the park with your family and listen to free 15-minute talks about the park’s history. An original piece of the Shadowland Ballroom dance floor and other memorabilia are in the Brass Ring Gift Shop. There are also available for purchase a one-hour DVD documentary titled “A Legacy of Memories: Silver Beach Amusement Park,” created by WNIT TV and “Silver Sands, Golden Memories,” written by Daryl Schlender.

Tuesday, June 25: Kiddies’ “Munchkins Day,” noon to 5:00 p.m.
“Come out, come out, wherever you are” for delightful Carousel rides and fun activities indoors and outdoors. Choose from 48 magnificent, hand-carved figures and two chariots (one is wheelchair accessible so everyone can ride). Tokens are half-price today ($2 each, limit two per adult). Kids ages 3-12 can enter the hourly drawings for large, colorful Munchkin lollipops.

Wednesday, June 26: Emerald City Express Day, noon to 5:00 p.m.
The Emerald City Express large miniature train display will mesmerize all ages as it winds through the intricately decorated Wizard of Oz layout. Memorabilia from the much-loved movie enhance the trains’ configurations. Hourly drawings for free cotton candy offer a sweet bonus to visitors.

Thursday, June 27: Defying Gravity Day, noon to 5:00 p.m.
Experience the sand-sculpting magic of the “Sand Pirate,” Janet Schrader, as she coaxes sand into a magnificent structure in front of the Shadowland Ballroom. Between noon and 5:00 p.m., she will share tips on how to create sandcastles. Ages 3-12 can enter the hourly drawings for Kinetic Sand at the Carousel refreshment stand.

Friday, June 28: Horse of a Different Color Day, noon to 5:00 p.m.
The Carousel will present riders with packs of Skittles candies during surprise rides. Children between the ages of 5-14 can show off their skills in the “Over the Rainbow” coloring contest with winners chosen in random drawings on June 29. Two winners in each age category will receive gift baskets.

All week there will be free coloring sheets and opportunities to take pictures with favorite Carousel figures, including the lion, tigers and bear. Free corn hole games with unique artistic renderings of Wizard of Oz characters are available outside the Carousel House.

Within the Silver Beach Center are two more attractions — the Shadowland Ballroom and Curious Kids’ Discovery Zone.

Summer Enrichment Series Returns to the Holland Farmers Market this Month

Holland, MI—The Holland Farmers Market is excited to announce that the popular Summer Enrichment Series will return to the Market beginning this month! The Summer Enrichment Series features a monthly line-up of fun, informative, and affordable adult classes at the Holland Farmers Market from June through September. Topics include beekeeping, composting, healthy meal tips, and more, with all sessions hosted by local experts and friends of the Market. Attendees are invited to shop at the Holland Farmers Market from 8:00 am – 2:00 pm before or after each class.

“We’re excited to for the return of Summer Enrichment Series this year,” said Holland Farmers Market Marketing Coordinator Kara de Alvare. “Our entire team is passionate about providing learning opportunities for the community and the monthly Summer Enrichment Series allows us to do that for adults, in much the same way as our weekly Kids Activities for children in the summer. We’ve put together a great line-up of educational classes for the summer and we encourage everyone to check it out!”

The first class in the Summer Enrichment Series, “Welcome to Beekeeping!” will be held on Saturday, June 22 at 10:00 am. Beekeeper Donald Lam will be teaching audience members all about the hobby of beekeeping at home. During the class, beekeeper Donald Lam from the Holland Area Beekeepers Association will share the ins and outs of beekeeping as a hobby. Audiences will learn about the equipment needed, the support systems available, the benefits, and the costs of beekeeping.

Lam and his wife Jean have been keeping honeybees for 35 years in the Holland area. In addition to leading classes, they provide pollination services for growers, produce honey that is available in local stores, and provide bees and equipment to area beekeepers. Don and Jean operate a beekeeping store in Holland and represent the Holland Area Beekeeping Association.

All Summer Enrichment Series classes are held at 10:00 am on the last Saturday of the month. Classes are held in the upstairs Market View room inside the Holland Civic Center at 150 West 8th Street. Classes are approximately an hour long and are just $10 each to attend. Advanced registration on Eventbrite is recommended as space is limited, however, walk-ins are welcome if space allows for $10 cash or check at the door. The registration links can be found under the “Events” tab on the Holland Farmers Market Facebook page. Admission fees are non-refundable. However, canceled registrations can be transferred to another individual or applied to a future class. Please contact the Market staff at 616.355.1058 for assistance transferring your registration.

Ottawa County ‘Shelter in Place’ Drill – October 6th

shelterinplace

Outdoor sirens: not just for tornados

Lou Hunt, Ottawa’s Emergency Management Director and the County’s ‘official storm chaser’ wants you to know that outdoor warning sirens are not just for tornadoes.

“It’s important that our citizens understand that the outdoor warning sirens can alert for many types of emergencies,” said Hunt. “If you hear the outdoor warning sirens, go inside and seek more information.”

The sirens are often used to alert residents of tornados or high winds, but they could also be used during a chemical hazard or nuclear threat. Sirens are intended to alert people who are outdoors (within about a mile of the sounding location) to seek shelter and further emergency instructions from TV, radio or media technology. The sirens are tested monthly from April through October.

‘Shelter in Place’ Drill

Just days after FEMA sent its own test wireless alert, Ottawa County is holding an emergency test of its own. This Friday, October 6, will be the last test of the outdoor warning siren for 2023. Emergency planners are urging residents to take a moment and simulate a real emergency on Friday. Officials are calling it a Shelter In Place Drill for a Chemical Emergency and here’s what you should do for the simulation:

  • Go inside and close doors and windows. For this drill, we are acting as though a poisonous vapor has been released into the air.
  • Shut down air conditioners, furnaces or fans. The goal is to keep outside air from entering inside.
  • Grab a role of duct tape and simulate taping window and door jams and covering vents.
  • In a real emergency, you would stay in your home or current location (called “shelter in place”) until a message reaches you that it is safe to resume activity.
  • If you cannot physically practice these steps, at least think about them.
  • If you are part of a business or organization, have you designated the responsible party for these steps? Can you discuss these steps with your team?

“In a technological world, a variety of chemicals travel our roads, rails and are even manufactured in Ottawa County. Having the capability to shelter in place during a chemical emergency is a something we need to be prepared for,” said Hunt.

Anyone who participates in the drill can provide feedback online.

“Farms are the Tapas” Fundraiser to Celebrate Farmland Preservation in Ottawa County

Ottawa County’s picturesque landscapes and thriving agricultural heritage are set to take center stage at the upcoming “Farms are the Tapas” fundraising event on September 28. This evening raises funding and awareness for Ottawa County’s farmland preservation program, a vital initiative dedicated to safeguarding the region’s agricultural legacy for generations to come.

Hosted at The Red Shed of Hudsonville, “Farms are the Tapas” will be an evening of culinary delights and community gathering, offering attendees unique opportunities to savor the flavors of locally sourced dishes while contributing to the preservation of Ottawa County’s cherished farmlands. The event will showcase the county’s vibrant agricultural scene by featuring a variety of tapas-style dishes crafted by local chefs competing for the coveted Harvest Knife Award.

“We are thrilled to invite the community to join us in celebrating the heart of Ottawa County—its farms,” said Julie Lamer, Farmland Preservation Specialist. “Ottawa County’s Purchase of Development Rights program plays a crucial role in protecting the land that sustains us, and ‘Farms are the Tapas’ is our way of honoring the hard work of our local farmers while raising funds to continue these important efforts.”

Tickets for “Farms are the Tapas” are available for purchase at miOttawa.org/tapas and cost $50. In addition to the dining experience, a silent auction will showcase an array of items and experiences. Opportunities to bid are available to both attendees and those unable to attend. Register to bid at event.gives/Tapas2023 and preview the auction items. Bidding opens on September 25, three days before the event.

Funds raised from “Farms are the Tapas” will directly benefit Ottawa County’s Purchase of Development Rights program, aiding in the acquisition of conservation easements. By supporting this cause, attendees will contribute to the long-term viability of the region’s agricultural landscape and help ensure a prosperous future for Ottawa County’s farming communities.

For more information and ticket purchases, please visit miOttawa.org/Farmland.

This year there will be 45 outdoor groups and organizations exhibiting fishing, hunting and recreational activities and opportunities for our youth. Some of the groups involved are Grand Haven Steelheaders, Coopersville Sportsman’s Club, and Lakeshore Pickleball Club.  The U.S. Coast Guard and Auxiliary will have several of their rescue vessels on site also. There will be fire safety demonstrations by multiple fire departments and EMS units throughout the day.  One of their demonstrations will be the improper way to prepare and deep fry a turkey. There will also be seminars by well-known fishermen throughout the day on how to catch multiple species of fish.  As you can see there will be something for everyone.  To find more information on Sportsmen for Youth and Youth Day, please go to our website (www.sportsmenforyouth.com) and our Facebook page.

Thank you.

Free Community Dance Event To Honor Troops in Fruitport

logo

DANCING INTO SUNSET, MILITARY NIGHT: Pomona Park, 93 S. Third Ave, Fruitport, MI

Dancing Into Sunset Honors Troops at Military Night with Live Music Featuring The Silverado Band, with A Cappella Patriotic Group Voices of Freedom, and Special Guests, the U.S. Coast Guard and Scout Troop 4023

Free community event, Dancing Into Sunset, headed into its 7th Season on June 8, 2023, moving steadily toward Military Night, its mid-season tribute to the service people of the U.S. Armed Forces, law enforcement, and first responders, which will be held on July 6, from 6:30pm to 9:30pm.

Sponsored by Dietz House Moving Engineers, crowd favorite The Silverado Band, and a cappella singing group Voices of Freedom, will showcase patriotic music at Dancing Into Sunset for this year’s Military Night event. The U.S. Coast Guard plans to bring a boat down to the Fruitport boat launch to join the dance again this year, provided there are no emergencies on the water. Scout Troop 4023 will also help us pay tribute to each Military Branch. Military veterans will be able to join the U.S. Coast Guard and Scout Troop 4023 on stage to stand behind their respective Branch flags after they are marched out during Voices of Freedom’s Branch song medley around 8pm.

Tribute Honors Available for Fans

As part of Military Night’s special honors for our troops, visitors can bring a photo of their loved one to place at the “Wall of Fame.” Those who wish to make a contribution to the night ahead of time can stop by Fruitport Orchard Market and donate non-perishable items to a collection box that Blue Star Moms will send off to the troops. The box will be on site at Pomona Park, Thursday, July 6, where visitors will also have an opportunity to bring non-perishable items and to write a note or short letter to slip into the box to encourage our service people. Special treats will be donated by Fruitport Orchard Market, and flowers will be donated by Spring Lake Floral. Mini American Made Flags will also be passed out.

In addition, this year Harbor Transit’s Laker Loop Trolley is FREE and circles Spring Lake every hour. The Laker Loop Trolley stops at Pomona Park regularly during dances, and connects with the Grand Haven Buccaneer Loop Trolley at the Spring Lake Holiday Inn, going to Pomona Park and back from Grand Haven.

Last summer, hundreds gathered at the Pomona Park Band Shell on the sunny shore of Spring Lake to enjoy The Silverado Band and Voices of Freedom for Military Night. The U.S. Coast Guard and Scout Troop 4023 participated in last year’s honors as well.

Join Dancing Into Sunset for Military Night, July 6, 2023, 6:30pm to 9:30pm, to celebrate our freedom and pay respect for those who fought to preserve it!
