This time of the year we reflect on the many blessings bestowed upon us, our families, , the foundation of our faith, and the people who make up our community. We are so richly blessed.
Please keep in your thoughts and prayers those less fortunate than us or who have experienced recent loss of family, friends, or who suffered through natural disasters or the cruel acts of man. May we turn our blessings into a life of Thanksgiving.

If you know Laura then you know that over the past four years she has served as the Manager of the Alpine Township Branch of the Kent District Library. Laura has been more than a great neighbor and is as close a member of the Alpine Township staff as you can get.
Laura has decided to retire from her position and spend more time with her husband Dick, who often assisted Laura as a volunteer for many of the special programs that were offered at the library.
Laura has become a fixture in the Alpine Township community and she will be greatly missed. Friends and neighbors are invited to congratulate Laura for her many years of dedication to the Kent District Library, first as a volunteer in Rockford where she resides, and then later as an employee. An open house is scheduled this Monday from 5:30 - 8:00 P.M. at the Alpine Township Hall at 5255 Alpine Ave, NW. If you know Laura, you will want to stop by and say hello and join her for some coffee, punch and cake.

Good food, attractive Christmas trees and wreaths, great local food vendors and loyal school supporters made for a wonderful Thursday evening at the Comstock Park High School new Fine Arts Center. The even was sponsored by and benefitted the Comstock Park School Educational Foundation. Topping off the evening was a musical performance given by 5th grade students of Pine Island Elementary School. Bids were offered and received on the over 30 tree entries. Raising the most funds was The Money Tree, decorated by Independent Bank. Other winning entries included "The Despicable Tree, which won several awards including most kid friendly, and most original, and was decorated by Kidz Club House. There was also a first sighting of who we think was Santa Clause and his helper.
