We are 14 days and 6 hours from the kick off of the 8th annual WO-Stock Music Festival! This year we are hosting 65 acts and counting. We are going to have two main stages one in the Gym and the other in the Cafe. A third stage for acoustic shows will be present inside of the Coffee House. To see a list of the bands playing go here! Tickets will go on sale very soon and will be available at Lemonjellos in Holland Michigan and West Ottawa High School. Other locations for ticket sales and specific times will become available next week.
The theme is from the band Boston. WO-Stock “More than a Feeling”
About 30 members of the CTEE spent Friday loading an ocean freight container with another consignment of computers destined for West Africa. In just over one hour, 200 stations were packed into a 20′ container destined for the port of Douala in Cameroon, via Detroit, New York, and Lisbon. I am always impressed by what our students are capable of accomplishing. This consignment included computers donated by Gentex, West Ottawa staff and retirees, but the bulk were contributed by Grand Haven Area Public Schools and Grand Valley State University. On behalf of those who are to benefit by their generosity, and the members of the CTEE who built the stations and packaged them for delivery, thank you. It is a really good feeling to know that there is support for these efforts in the wider West Michigan community. GVSU has been a consistent participant, and has even donated one of their student IT assistants. Alec Dhuse of Grand Haven, a graduate of Grand Valley, is now a Peace Corps Volunteer in Cameroon! His university post will benefit directly from GVSU donations to this shipment.
