Upcoming Events -

Saturday, June 30 - Kayak Trip

  • Saturday, June 30 at 1 PM
  • Tyden Park, 404 N. Broadway St. Hastings, MI 49058

Join in for a Saturday afternoon ride down the Thornapple River in Hastings! We will meet at Tyden Park in Hastings at 1 PM. Some friendly assistants will take us upstream and drop us off with some borrowed canoes / kayaks, whereupon we will embark for about a 3 hour ride down the river to our starting point. Then, we will head out for dinner & fellowship at the Walldorff BrewPub in Hastings! Please RSVP if you would like to join in the fun by Wed. June 27, either by responding to the event on Facebook or by emailing . Please let us know if you have your own watercraft that you would be bringing. This should be a low cost evening (besides for paying for your dinner, and potentially pitching in a few $ if we have to rent additional kayaks). If the weather is bad or the water level too high from rains, we will cancel. Hope to see you there! Link to Facebook Event: https://www.facebook.com/events/978032862360591/
