The “Hello Girls”April 6, 2017
07:00 PM / 08:30 PM Loutit District Library, 407 Columbus Avenue, Grand Haven, MI 49417 616.842.5560 x222
The U.S. entered World War I on April 6, 1917, and the “Hello Girls” were formed later that year when General Pershing insisted he needed bilingual phone operators near the front lines. Storyteller Lois Sprengnether Keel portrays Oleda Joure, a Marine City, Michigan teenager who received special permission to enlist. Only after the war did the Girls learn that the Army considered them contractors instead of combatants, which meant they could not receive any veteran’s benefits. President Carter finally recognized their contributions in 1978 during the fiftieth anniversary of the war’s end. Learn about Oleda and this group of heroic women of southeastern Michigan, including their only death abroad, in a program featuring music and other artifacts of the time.
First Friday Art Hop at C2C GalleryApril 7, 2017
06:00 PM / 08:00 PM 616-935-7337
Last year, a community First Friday Art Hop was organized. Five other locations host either music and/or artists and we are hoping to add more businesses as 2017 progresses: The Creative Fringe; Gallery Uptown; The Armory; The Theater Bar; and Carlin & Company.
This First Friday we are hosting a Conversation with two internationally known Michigan artists - Mark Chatterley and Mark Mehaffey. These two artists have been friends for many years. Learn what they think about art, life, and the world around them. As always, we will be hosting live music with Nick Kraus and Miss Kathleen.
The Featured Artist at C2C Gallery will again be Cindy Bender, Michigan Watercolor Painter. Cindy M Bender lives in Zeeland, Michigan. She has participated in many juried art competitions and exhibits including the Michigan Watercolor Society, Muskegon Regional, First Church spiritual show in Grand Rapids, Grand Haven winter show, the Holland Regional and MI Arts shows.
Live Music will be provided by Nick Kraus & Miss Kathleen. They offer an acoustic blend of alt-country, rock, blues, Jazz and folk. In other words, all things Americana. Nick’s lead vocals are backed by the sweet harmonies of wife Kathleen, creating a sound that is both unique and yet subtly reminiscent of the glory days of Johnny Cash and June Carter. Nick plays guitar and piano while Miss Kathleen plays a variety of instruments, including guitar, bass, and banjo. Their sets include a mix of originals, old time standards and tunes by the Beatles, CCR, Steve Earle, Willie Nelson, Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Hank Williams and Neil Young to name a few.
