Didn’t get a chance to celebrate Valentine’s Day on Thursday? Make up for it this weekend. Here are some suggestions.

(1) Spring Lake Rotary Snow Jam — 5-10 p.m. Saturday at Spring Lake’s Central Park. The eighth annual Snow Jam kicks off with a euchre tournament Friday from 6-11 p.m. at the Grand Haven Elks Club, 15 S. Third St. On Saturday night, the entertainment tent will feature live music from Electric Red, a dart tournament, cornhole games, food, drink and a raffle. Raffle tickets are $25, or five for $100, with a $5,000 grand prize. All proceeds go to the Rotary’s good works in the community.

(2) Jim Cooper Jazz Trio — 3 p.m. Sunday in front of the fireplace at Spring Lake District Library, 123 E. Exchange St. The trio — Jim Cooper on vibraphone, Robin Connell on keyboards and Tim Froncek on drums — will be performing jazz standards and original compositions. Admission is free.

(3) Steel Doin’ It — 4 p.m. Sunday at First Presbyterian Church, 508 Franklin Ave., Grand Haven. In 2002, Steel Doin’ It was born from a community education class taught by Glen Miller at Spring Lake High School. Although some folks from the original group have retired, and others have joined, the group is still completely composed of Tri-Cities residents. Their mission is to have fun, while bringing the sounds of the Trinidadian steel pan to West Michigan. You are encouraged to wear your favorite brightly colored Caribbean apparel to the free concert, which is part of the church’s Community Artist Series.

(4) “The Women of Lockerbie!” — opens Friday night at the Beardsley Theater, 425 W. Western Ave., downtown Muskegon. This Muskegon Civic Theatre production follows a mother from New Jersey who roams the hills of Lockerbie, Scotland, looking for her son’s remains that were lost in the crash of Pan Am 103. She meets the women of Lockerbie, who are fighting the U.S. government to obtain the clothing of the victims found in the plane’s wreckage. The women, determined to convert an act of hatred into an act of love, want to wash the clothes of the dead and return them to the victims’ families. Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, with a 3 p.m. Sunday matinee. Tickets are $20 to $22. For more information, call the box office at 231-727-8001.
