WYCE's Spring Hat Trick Concert Series - presented by The Law Firm of Rhodes McKee - concludes with a performance by Backyard Tire Fire in a FREE show at One Trick Pony Grill and Taproom, Monday, May 17th at 7:30pm. Like their aromatic namesake, Backyard Tire Fire have grown from a smoldering, localized slow burn to an insistent, overriding funky presence that’s spreading - and refuses to be snuffed. This show benefits Goodwill Industries of Greater Grand Rapids, changing lives and communities through the power of work. The show is FREE with a suggested minimum donation of $10 to the night's charity. The Hat Trick series is once again made possible with support from The Law Firm of Rhodes McKee with lodging provided by Peaches Bed and Breakfast and audio support from Mark Swanson.

The Literacy Center of West Michigan (click for more info)

As many as 1 in 8 adults in west Michigan cannot read or write above a ninth grade level.  Low literacy often prevents these individuals from accessing the rich social and economic resources in our community.  

You can make a difference by becoming a tutor.  No special skills are needed - just an ability to read and write in English and a passion to help someone else do the same.   

For more information, call Literacy Center of West Michigan at 616 459-5151 or sign up for a volunteer orientation online at "Literacy Center W M dot org."
