The Three Rivers Lions Club wishes to thank those who stopped by during their open house this past Friday afternoon and early evening. Future informational events are in the works, so watch this column so that you can plan to attend the next one. For more information on joining the Lions, please contact Lion Dean at 273-8092. My father used to tell me that, if you don’t learn something new every day, you’re missing a very important opportunity.
The Spirit Rhythms Coffee House invites everyone to stop out and listen to Los Bandits de Michigan. They will perform Saturday evening, April 25, at 7 P.M. Los Bandits’ style reflects the richness of Tex-Mex music by combining Rhythm and Blues, Gospel, Country, Rock, Norteno, and Tejano music. The group brings an alternative world beat sound that appeals to a very diverse audience. If you’ve never had the opportunity to visit Spirit Rhythms, you’ll definitely want to visit the coffee house, located inside St. John’s Lutheran Church on North Buckhorn Road in Three Rivers. You’ll not only experience a free concert, but you may also partake of some fantastic gourmet desserts prepared by Chef Amber Mathews while enjoying fairly traded coffee and tea. As previously mentioned, admission is free; however, donations are always graciously accepted, and refreshments are available for purchase.
The Three Rivers Community Schools and the Carnegie Center for the Arts invite everyone to the opening awards reception for “A Celebration of the Visual Arts”. The date and times to remember are Sunday, April 26 from 2 to 4 P.M., at the Carnegie Center, 107 North Main, in historic downtown Three Rivers. The high school awards presentation will take place at 3 P.M. This impressive exhibit will remain on display until May 28. The Carnegie Center for the Arts is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 A.M. to 5 P.M. and, on Saturdays, you may stop by from 10 A.M. to 3 P.M. For more information on this exhibit or other exhibits that might interest you, please phone the Carnegie at (269)273-8882.
I mentioned the 46th Annual Old Car Dust Off in last week’s column, but I’d like to nudge you a bit with a reminder that this popular event takes place Sunday, May 3 from 8 A.M. to 3 P.M. I’ll continue to refresh your memory for the next couple of weeks. You fans of cars of years gone by won’t want to miss this annual gathering in Mendon.
We’ve experienced a few days of very nice weather. I thank whoever is responsible for making days nice enough to want to spend more time outside. Soon one’s desires will turn to the idea of partaking of a refreshing Popsicle. I’m sure they cost more than a nickel, but they still satisfy and wake up the tastebuds. To prevent a Popsicle from dripping down your hand and arm, poke one or two holes as needed in a coffee filter. You might look a bit odd, but you won’t get all sticky.
The weather is getting better. Take a walk and take the family.
See you Out and About!
