(2) Board of Light & Power Community Open House — 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. The BLP is celebrating the 30th anniversary of J.B. Sims Unit 3 with public tours. Catch a free shuttle on Harbor Transit to and from the plant. Pick up and return locations are at the corner of Third Street and Washington Avenue and on Harbor Island.

(3) Let's End Hunger Fundraiser — 8 p.m. to midnight Friday at the Eagles club, 20 N. Second St. in downtown Grand Haven. Admission is by donation to benefit World Hunger Relief. Organizers say your $10 will feed an entire classroom for a day. The event includes dancing, raffles, auctions, pizza and cash bar. Everyone working this event, including the Soul'd Out band and the local Pizza Hut staff, are donating their time and resources.

(4) DeWitt School Open House — 1 p.m. Saturday at DeWitt School, 17716 Taft St., Spring Lake Township. Catch an informal tour of this historic one-room schoolhouse.

Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for senior citizens and students, and free for kids ages 4 and younger. Now, they're not the Harlem Globetrotters, but it should be a lot of fun. Go to brownpapertickets.com to purchase tickets in advance. Visit the hoops team's website, harlemambassadors.com to see what they're about.
