Rock concert kicks off Earth Day activities in Grand Haven

The Elks Lodge in downtown Grand Haven was rocking in celebration of planet Earth on Friday night for the sixth annual Earth Rock concert. Lexen Sterenberg, organizer of the concert, said he was excited about this year's show and the kick off to area Earth Day activities. "A lot of musicians (and) a lot of poets tend to have humanitarian ties, so I thinks it's a really good fit to have an Earth Day event like this,' he said.

He said he and other committee members involved with the various Earth Day events have been going over logistics of the show in addition to the other activities taking place today.
