Supporting businesses and the community in working together to make Grand Ledge
a great place to live and do business
Thank you to our sponsors Auto Owners Insurance, City of Grand Ledge, Consumers Energy, Dart Bank, Home Light, Meijer, Metro Net, Nick Cypher Farm Bureau Insurance and T-Mobile for your generous support!
We had a successful parade with 55 businesses, along with a team of volunteers to set up, organize and keep everyone safe!
Thank you to the American Legion Post 48 for the tree donation this year, the City of Grand Ledge for helping us install and decorate it and Meijer for the donation of the lights!
There was a special North Pole delivery to Bridge Street Plaza on Friday so Grand Ledge kids can write a letter to Santa!
The light pole decorating contest is getting lots of votes!!
Be sure and stroll down South Bridge Street to take a look at Hedlund Plumbing, MacDowells, Weathered Nest Vintage Market, GLHS Foreign Language Department, Flagstar Bank, Transfast Trucking, Ledge Craft Lane and J Rose Designs decorated poles.
We are once again partnering with Independence Living, Meals on Wheels, Regency at Lansing West, Senior Community Care of Michigan, Tri County on Aging and Serenity Place to do porch drops for 50 senior citizens this Christmas.
The Christmas gift deliveries will be complete by December 22nd.
There are change buckets at the following locations through December 15th:
Ledges Chiropractic Center
Flour Child Bakery
First Place Sports
Ledge Craft Lane
Weathered Nest Vintage Market
Seven Islands Mercantile
Eyes Optometry Boutique
These are used to collect money for Grand Ledge Emergency Assistance Program (GLEAP).
If you see one, drop in your spare change! Change can make change!
