Grand Haven Main Street Light Night 2017

Washington Avenue from harbor to beacon and Seventh Street (Centertown) Free to attend for all ages!

As visitors marvel at the twinkling displays, Grand Haven’s own WGHN plays Christmas songs in the street and FREE hot cocoa and Main Street shopping bags will be given to the first 500 shoppers. Indoors, participating merchants host open houses with special promotions and their own treats and specials from mulled cider to facepainting, popcorn and chocolates. The complementary Harbor Shuttle will transport patrons from downtown to Centertown and back throughout the evening, where you can find gifts for everyone on your list.

Women moving forward

By Becky Vargo Joyce Workman says she’s always loved the color green. She can’t remember ever loving another color. “It’s my color,” she explains. “I’m nearly always wearing it, collecting it.” Workman also loves antiques — knowing that each piece has its own story, that it was loved by someone and once treasured.

If there’s a lot of dust or dirt build-up on your filter, you should change it. “For what they cost, that’s the No. 1 thing a homeowner can do to maintain their equipment.” Zwier explained that your heating system sucks cold air into your furnace, where it’s heated up before being blown into your home. “When you restrict that filter, you’re increasing the internal temperature of your furnace,” he said. “There is a safety on that, but you can wear out your safety, it costs more money, and you’re going to end up with a repair replacing a limit switch because you didn’t change your filter. “It also makes your system work a lot harder, which ...
