Lakeshore Youth Leadership Connections is a group of 20 eighth and 10th graders who are selected to participate in gaining enhanced personals skills and the capacity to create change as leaders. In addition, they obtain a better understanding of each community as well as learning to respect the similarities and differences of each area.
The program is run by the Chamber of Commerce Grand Haven, Spring Lake and Ferrysburg.
The 100 Men Who Give help charitable organizations in the Tri-Cities area by making unanticipated gifts to support good works in the community. The group currently has about 70 members and meets quarterly in Spring Lake. In a one-hour meeting each quarter, the group listens to presentations from three randomly selected members representing local or non-profit organizations, asks questions of the presenters, and then votes to determine which agency receives its charitable funds. Each member writes a $100 check and the funds are quickly disbursed to the winning agency.
The 100 Men Who Give is open to all and welcomes new members at any time. The group’s next meeting is 5:30 p.m. Thursday, April 19, at Seven Steps Up in Spring Lake. Those interested can contact Kyle Williams at [email protected] or 616-402-1389 for more information.
