Keeping it cool in Spring Lake

Keeping it cool in Spring Lake

No doubt this has been one hot week and more hot weather is in the forecast. If you're in Spring Lake chances are a cool place is waiting for you. The Spring lake beach is a popular destination for area residents- especially now. If you want to take a refreshing dip at this local favorite go north on Lake Avenue off Savage (M-104). And if swimming isn't your cup of tea head to the Spring Lake Library. You'll find plenty of things to do in a cool atmosphere. And if you would rather just sit and chill, you'll find a cooling center at Barber School Community Center located on Exchange and Buchanan. Keep it cool in Spring Lake!

GRAND RAPIDS, MI - WZZM 13, the Grand Rapids ABC affiliate owned by Gannett Co., Inc., announces that Chief Meteorologist, George Lessens will be at Mary A. White Elementary School in Grand Haven, MI at 9:30 AM, EST to work with students on a weather balloon launch. Two fourth grade students at the school have been working on a science project at home, but word has since spread and now an entire grade school is on board to witness the launch this week Thursday, May 12th around 10:00 AM.

Brian and Tyler Harms wondered what would happen if they launched a weather balloon with a camera inside. “We are naming our weather balloon the MAW Voyager (Mary A. White School) after the initials of our school”, says Tyler Harms.
