(4) “Guys & Dolls Jr.” — 7 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday at White Pines Middle School, 1400 S. Griffin St., Grand Haven. Kids have been working hard to put this show on, organized by the Northwest Ottawa Recreation Authority. Tickets are $5 for adults, $3 for children and senior citizens.

(5) Library Birthday Party — 2-4 p.m. Saturday at Loutit District Library (Program Room A), 407 Columbus Ave., Grand Haven. It’s been five years since the remodeled library reopened. Celebrate with cake, games and craft-making. Bring a new personal-care item to be donated to The Salvation Army.
