The Big Brothers Big Sisters organizations across the country match up children who need a "big brother" or "big sister" with an adult who volunteers to spend some time in shaping a child's life.
Stefanie Herder of Spring Lake is one of those volunteers. In her blog, "Saturday with Suzy," Herder writes about a recent day she spent with her charge in downtown Grand Haven, complete with plenty of photographs.
"Suzy’s 11th birthday was this week, so I suggested we head to downtown Grand Haven for some shopping and sightseeing," Herder wrote. "She lives in Muskegon and doesn’t make it to Grand Haven often, so it’s all pretty new to her — which is fun for me. I get to see Grand Haven through the eyes of an 11-year-old!"
