Those behind Pink Arrow Pride work throughout the year for the Pink Arrow game. However, Community Day is where each year’s activities are kicked off leading up to the game. All Weather Seal, Spectrum Health, and Zeigler Automotive will sponsor the event. This year Lowell will host East Grand Rapids on September 8.
Kicking Off Year 10
Community Day will take place along the Riverwalk on Thursday, August 17 from 10am – 7pm. This year’s Pink Arrow t-shirts will be revealed at the event and will be available to purchase for $15 each. One of the day’s sponsors, All Weather Seal, will once again be generously donating $1 for every shirt sold this day. Cash, check, debit card, and credit card payments will be accepted.
Michigan Blood will also return. If 100 pints of donated blood is reached throughout the day they will give $10 for each person who tries to give blood to Gilda’s Club of Lowell. You can sign up by calling 866-642-5663 or online at the Michigan Blood website. Walk-ups are allowed as long as a time slot is open.
And new this year Spectrum Health and Betty Ford Breast Care Services will be present. Mammogram appointments can be made between 10am – 1pm. Call 616-267-2626 to schedule an appointment. Walk ups are allowed as long as a time slot is open. The traveling unit is new and will make its debut at Community Day.
If you’re hungry lunch and dinner will be provided. Hot dogs off the grill, macaroni, chips, and a drink will be offered. The Cabus will also be on site. The first 300 people will receive free ice cream. It will then be $2 while supplies last.
