Plainwell: Bridge/poker walk
PLAINWELL—The Island City Labor Day Bridge and Poker Walk will be back for its 20th outing on Monday, Sept. 4.
The non-competitive walk of Plainwell’s seven bridges takes roughly 45 minutes and features stations along the route at which participants pick up playing cards. The walkers with the best and worst hands win prizes.
Walkers donate $25 each, and Cathy Green with the Plainwell Arts Council said the proceeds will help bring back the Missoula Children’s Theater in 2018.
The theater group recently came to town to help lead a free musical theater workshop at the Plainwell Community Center. Throughout the week, the children learned lines, songs and dances. The effort was spearheaded by Bridges of Hope Allegan County, with support from the Plainwell Arts Council and the Anna Pipp Foundation.
Registration for the Bridge Walk begins at 9 a.m. at Fannie Pell Park and the walk begins at 9:30 a.m.
