Although Mother Nature was stingy with the snow, the heat was on at the Spring Lake Rotary Club's first-ever Snow Jam at Central Park.
About 150 people visited the heated tent throughout the day and evening to listen to live music, sip beer and chat with friends.

The Spring Lake Rotary Club has approved the Boy Scout Troop 14 dog park project as the beneficiary of its 2012 raffle ticket sales.
Thanks to a former Jeffers Elementary School teacher, the Spring Lake Schools Foundation has gifted $10,202 in grants to Spring Lake teachers for everything from series books to digital storytelling and an iPad.
