25th Anniversary
Cedar Springs
Community Night
Thursday, April 21 • 6 - 9 PM
Cedar Springs High School
Community Night began small and
has grown into a wonderful event!
It started as a way to showcase the student’s accomplishments, thus bringing the school
and community together. Through the years we encouraged businesses, agencies, and
organizations to also set up booths, now in the current High School.
The Community Action Network (CAN) took over the sponsorship of the event, previously
run by the CS Education Boosters. CAN was joined by the Cedar Springs Public School.
There’s something to be proud of here in Northern Kent County, and we want people to
know what a great community Cedar Springs is with what we have to offer.
This is not a fundraiser - vendor fees ($25) cover expenses. The committee advertises
the event. Participants are welcome to advertise on their own. The evening is free to the
community. We usually showcase around 130 booths.
If you want to rent a booth or need more information feel free to contact Isabelle Brace at
izzyb9@charter.net or izzybr9@gmail.com or you can call 1-616-696-9543.

See You At Community Night!

Meditation and Relaxation


One of the tools we can learn to use to help us deal with the memories of past physical and emotional trauma
is Meditation and Relaxation.

Don’t Forget…
In the early 1980’s I was working in the plant medical department at Diesel Equipment, one of the General
Motors factories in Grand Rapids. The job was very stressful. I had developed an ulcer and had high blood
pressure. The weekend fun of sailing, partying with friends, and excessive drinking was making things worse
instead of better.

Deadlines I realized that I did not know how to relax; I did not know how to slow down my mind and let my body
recharge and rejuvenate. I decided to attend a four hour class to try to learn how to relax. Although I was
skeptical, it turned out to be one of those life changing experiences.
for River Valley News Shopper For the first time in years, I realized that the pressure I had in my chest was not normal. With the daily practice
of the mental training exercises I had learned, the blood pressure returned to normal and the ulcer healed.
The effects of this was so profound, I decided to explore further. I took a training program call “The Silva
News & Editorial - Tuesdays at Noon Method”. This was a four day course targeted at teaching people to learn to use their own minds for the benefit
of their own health.
We had learned to meditate. Meditation is a way to relax the body and recharge all the chemicals that are
constantly being used up. I had always viewed meditation as something strange and odd. I had seen pictures of
Area Happenings, Here’s My Card, the Guru with folded arms and legs, chanting in a blue haze of incense. In reality it is very
different.
Business/Church Directories - Meditation has three parts. The Induction helps us change quickly from an active, awake
Wednesdays at Noon state of mind to a more passive, restful state. The Programming Phase involves mental
pictures and statements, much like daydreaming. When we mentally see ourselves at an
ideal place of relaxation, our brain thinks we are actually there and it begins to manufacture
the chemicals associated with relaxation. Positive affirmations (statements) help up-date
Classified & Display Advertising - our out dated operating programs. The Ending is a gradual return to our normal activity.
Daily practice of a relaxing meditation will improve our lives physically, mentally, and
Thursdays at Noon spiritually. If you cannot find a class to help you learn this, you may find my CDs, “Coaching,
and Christian Coaching for Perfect Health” to be just what you need.
