Easter Goodies, April 2 Fundraiser & Eastend Pickers!

Wow! What a busy week coming up in the eastend! Don’t forget this Thursday April 2 from 5:30-7 pm. RAIN OR SHINE! If it ends up raining, we will have a tent set up and we will serve the chili and baked potato bar take out style. Stop by, fill up, drive off! If the rain holds off by that time, we will have tables set up in the parking lot. We really need everyone’s support on this first fundraiser for the Beechtree flowers! Remember, these meals are donation based so give what you can. Every amount is appreciated.

“Dinner in the Parking Lot” Summer Schedule

Picnic

The warm up in weather has inspired us to put together the Spring/Summer fundraising calendar. Our first Thursday evening, “Dinner in the Parking Lot” is scheduled for April 2! As usual, there is no set price for our dinners. We operate on donations with proceeds going towards the street decorations. The first dinner’s donations are going towards the Spring/Summer plants and the galvanized horse trough containers we have been working towards. We hope to have the troughs installed by April 23, the night of our second “Dinner in the Parking Lot.”

Each of these Thursdays will feature a different menu and fundraising goals. All moneys are transparent and go to the Eastown Association.

Please email Marcy if you are able to help out with food or anything else: tlynch3315@charter.net

Location: Conrer of Beechtree and Grant in Grand Haven’s Eastown at The Aluminum Mule (a.k.a. Fat Chix)

April 2 – Chili & Baked Potato Bar Fundraiser

April 2 5:30-7pm will be our first fundraiser of the year! All of our fundraisers last year were amazing and helped create the awesome holiday decorations that were on Beechtree Street this winter. We plan on cruising right along with our fundraising efforts into 2015 to continue improving Grand Haven’s east end.

The fundraiser will feature traditional chili, vegetarian chili and white chicken chili.

The baked potato bar will have all the fixins’ with butter, broccoli cheese, regular cheese, chives, sour creme and bacon bits! We will do this rain or shine so dress warm because it probably won’t be super warm yet here in Grand Haven but let’s hope the snow is done! A complete list of the summer fundraisers and food offered will be coming shortly! All kinds of good stuff coming up!

Cartoon Cuteness or Strangeness…

So Mary has acquired this rather quirky bit of folk art: a painted wooden ironing board complete with animals cute and strange. We had to chuckle at the incredibly overweight hedgehog and the rather “dazed” looking elephant on the bottom. Whatever story you want to create about this one-of-a-kind vintage piece of art, its available at Fat Chix/Aluminum Mule until someone nabs it!
