It's halfway through the month of October, which means Halloween is just around the corner. Pumpkin patches are looking to sell to all who desire a little fall festivity. Four-year-old Nate Hillard from Muskegon can barely pick up his free pumpkin after riding the Pumpkin Train.

Summerfest 2012

Summerfest 2012

From: Coopersville Area Chamber of Commerce

The biggest event your Chamber coordinates is the annual, week-long, family-friendly Coopersville Summerfest festival. Your Chamber's executive director usually dedicates two solid months to managing the last minute details of this annual event. Planning usually starts eight-months before the event so your Board of Directors were left scrambling to juggle all the balls with the loss of our new executive director. We really needed someone familiar with the event, media connections as well as the players and places associated with this undertaking. We have to give a heartfelt shout out to Lee Ann Creager who jumped out of the frying pan (managing the quilt show, tractor show and Farm Museum) and into the fire to manage ALL the parts and pieces of this year's Summerfest event.

Art of Rural Life Gallery features local crafter

Carmen Langlois, a local pressed flower crafter, will have her artwork displayed in her first public show at Art of Rural Life Gallery in Coopersville.  She lives in Coopersville with her husband Monte and two teenage sons, Matt and Eric.

"I can't draw or paint well, but I enjoy visual arts,” says Carmen. “When I decided to start crafting years ago, I figured I would let God's beauty speak for itself. I would just arrange it in an interesting way."

Her craft has just begun as it has taken years to build up an inventory of flowers and leaves that press well. From traditional to unusual, Carmen plans to keep making more pieces as she learns what styles people enjoy most.

"I pressed a lot of things that turned brown and even moldy. There are also many varieties you can buy online.
