Labor Day Community Walk

September 7, 2015
09:00 AM / 12:00 PM

Grand Haven, Mich. – The Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness, Health and Sports and the Michigan Fitness Foundation have endorsed the Grand Haven Labor Day Community Walk as a quality physical activity event through the Pure Michigan FITness Series endorsement program.

This year’s event will kick off at 9:00am on the north side of the Third Street Bridge. Participants will be invited to walk on the boardwalk to the end of the pier and then end back at Chinook Pier for a raffle and light refreshments afterwards.

The Pure Michigan FITness Series program endorses local, regional and statewide events that are consistent with the Governor’s Council and the Michigan Fitness Foundation mission to promote healthy choices while offering a physical activity event that is open to all participants, regardless of skill level or age. The Grand Haven Labor Day Community Walk leads by example in providing a safe, healthy physical activity event for Michigan residents.

“By endorsing local events, we have the opportunity to highlight the positive impact of incorporating physical activity into your daily life,” says Mike Maisner, Vice President of Active Communities. “Pure Michigan FITness events promote physical activity for individuals and communities while providing a fun way for us all to get moving.”

The City of Grand Haven is one of several Michigan communities holding a Labor Day walk, according to Mayor McCaleb. Officials believe the walk will be a fun way to help its citizens lead healthier, more physically active lives.

Have your event endorsed by Pure Michigan FIT. Any organization hosting a physical activity event can fill out an endorsement application. Some criteria taken into consideration include the safety and well-being of participants, qualifications of event organizers and officials, proper emergency procedures and maximum participation opportunities.

LDL’s Sunday Concert Series: Ray Kamalay’s Musical Flea Market

September 13, 2015
02:00 PM / 03:00 PM
Loutit District Library, 407 Columbus Ave. 616.842.5560 x222

Kamalay’s performance is a collection of many kinds of “antique” music: Bach, ragtime, Irish music, Mexican, jazz, stuff from vaudeville, and much more. Like a table at a flea market, each item is unrelated to the object next to it, but is of some unique value. It’s light and entertaining, as you’ll see, and has proven very popular.
