Welcome Home, Vietnam Veterans

On Thursday, the Comstock Park Rotary Club met at the Swann Inn on Alpine Ave. Guests were Timothy Eernisse, Development and Marketing Manager for WGVU Television, and Jeff Meulendyk, with Sons for the American Legion Detachment. The topic was an upcoming event at the the Fifth Third Ball Park for Vietnam Veterans on July 3rd called "LZ (Landing Zone) MICHIGAN". It is a Welcome Home event for Vietnam Veterans. The plan is to have a proper but non-intrusive "Thank You" for all Vietnam Veterans, particularly those who never received a proper "Welcome Home". With this state wide event being held in our own back yard, we encourage Alpine Township's participation.

Identity Theft Prevention

On Friday the Comstock Park Post Office offered free shredding to all Comstock Park residents. In addition to the shredding, the Post Office offered several Identity Theft Prevention Tips to all who participated. Many residents took advantage of this event and brought in old tax papers, check books and other financial records to see them shredded before their very eyes. Post Office patrons also enjoyed complimentary coffee and cookies for the day. The event was co=sponsored by West Michigan Document Shredding of Jenison.
