It seems there are free summer concerts everywhere this summer.

I have seen banners flying in small towns and villages all over Michigan.

What a great way to get out and enjoy the local parks, people

and scenery. Not to be outdone, Ada Michigan is joining the free

music array this summer.



Ada Historic Museum barns


Ada Historical Society is jumping on the proverbial “bandwagon”

with their Music on the Lawn Series.

Last Friday, they featured the Nowhere Band, which bills itself as a

Beatles tribute band.  Darn, we missed that but I plan on attending

some of the remaining concerts this summer.


All concerts are located at the Ada Historical Society

National Senior Health & Fitness Day    May 27th, 2009    

Is it true that the words free and seniors just go together?  As I edge ever

closer to this category, it certainly seems so to me.  At the very least,

a free event should be well attended in this economy.  If you find yourself

available next Wednesday, here’s a couple of free options for education 

 and entertainment:

100,000 adults will participate in activities at more than 1,000 locations

throughout the U.S. as we celebrate the 16th annual

National Senior Health & Fitness Day.

The common goal for this day: to help keep older Americans healthy and fit.

Come on out to Ada Park or Forest Hills Fine Arts Center to take part in a

series of guided activities and presentations to promote your health.
