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."

Bombadil (click for more info)
"Wednesdays At Wealthy" is a weekly event at the Koning MicroCinema in Wealthy Theatre. Every second Wednesday of the month WYCE rocks out with a musical event. In May, we present, "BOMB-ba-dil,", sponsored by Hopcat. Bombadil is a band that Magnet Magazine calls, "A drunker, circus-reared version of 'The Band.'"
"BOMB-ba-dil's" sound is inspired by Bolivian folk music; they have a sound all their own and a stage show to match. The FREE show starts at 7:00PM on Wednesday May 14th at Wealthy Theatre. Information about this and other "Wednesdays at Wealthy" events is available by calling 459-4788 Ext 130 or on-line at www.grcmc.org.
