GRAND HAVEN, Mich. - What were the sports in, around and beyond Grand Haven more than a century ago?
Michigan High School Athletic Association sports historian Ron Pesch will answer that question with a special centennial presentation at Loutit District Library. Pesch will explain how athletics at local high schools, community sports leagues and national events like Harvard's crushing defeat of Yale in the historic Blue "bowl" in 1914, all helped pave the way for the multi-billion dollar industry we have today.
This free presentation is Thursday, June 12 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in Program Room A. For more information, visit www.loutitlibrary.org or call (616) 842-5560, ext. 232.
Pesch is also a member of the board of directors of the Muskegon Area Sports Hall of Fame, and is on the board of directors of the International Buster Keaton Society Inc.
