New Community Connections Program

Our Community Connections programs aim to build and expand social circles and create meaningful shared learning, cultural, and physical or active experiences to improve lives and reduce social isolation in Newaygo County. Recognizing the vital need for human connection, Community Connections is designed for people of all ages to build bridges, explore new activities and places, and be empowered to showcase all they have to offer.

We are launching a new program called All Together! to reduce social isolation and promote service in the community. Nodding to the long history of local knitters making and donating hats, mittens, and scarves to our Children’s Christmas Programs, we kicked things off with Knitting All Together, a knitting & crocheting circle for good on Thursday, February 16. We provided lots of yarn, space to gather, and staff to provide support. Twenty people attended and a good time was had by all!

The knitting & corcheting circle will be meeting every Tuesday from 12 – 3 pm and every Thursday from 9 am – 12 pm. Drop in to TrueNorth (6308 S. Warner, Fremont) and join the fun group! Who knows where we’ll go next: Baking All Together? Raking All Together? Fixing All Together? Let us know what interests you, or ideas you have! Read more in the Spring Navigator right here!
