The series of “Discover Your Community Days” from Fremont Area Community Foundation will conclude on October 20 with a focus on local health care and the arts. The events are part of the Leadership Series, presented in partnership with the Fremont Area and River Country chambers of commerce.

Discover Your Community Days are designed to give current and emerging community leaders a broader base of knowledge of Newaygo County, an opportunity to network, and a better awareness of area resources.

On October 20, participants will spend the morning touring the Dogwood Center for Performing Arts, Newaygo County Council for the Arts-Artsplace, and Spectrum Health Gerber Memorial Hospital. After lunch and a tour at Tamarac, participants will travel to Grant for tours of Family Health Care and Grant Fine Arts Center and a presentation by LionHeart Productions.

“We are proud of our local health care facilities and vibrant arts community,” said Carla Roberts, FACF president and CEO. “This event is a great way to get a behind-the-scenes look at some of our county’s health care and arts organizations. It will also be an outstanding opportunity to network with others who are passionate about making Newaygo County a great place to live.”

Previous Discover Your Community Days concentrated on business, agriculture, education, local government, human services, Newaygo County history, and natural resources. In addition to support from local chambers of commerce, the events were developed with input from alumni of the Leadership in Newaygo County (LINC) program.

The October 20 event is free and includes lunch and transportation. Coffee and networking will begin at 8:30 a.m. at the Dogwood Center and participants will be transported back to the Dogwood after the event concludes at 3:30 p.m.

While free to attend, space is limited. Find more information and register by visiting or calling 231.924.5350.
