Traveling along Gingerbread Lane

What can be more fun this holiday season than being creative with friends and family.  About 75 children and adults visited the Township Hall Saturday morning to create gingerbread houses.  It was all part of the Kent District Library's program "Gingerbread Lane".   Do you feel like you missed out on a great family event?  The same program is offered at the Comstock Park Library on 3943 W. River Dr. NE  at 4:00 PM Thursday December 13, and at the Plainfield Library at 2650 5 Mile NE at 2:00 PM  on Saturday December 15th.   For more information or programs at all locations please visit
The tradition of making gingerbread houses can be tracked back to Germany.  Nearly a thousand years ago, explorers came back to the city of Nuremberg Germany from the middle east with the ginger spice.  The city is still known as the gingerbread capital of the world
