Military Families Get in for Free This Weekendby Linda Odette
Free visits for active-duty and veteran military families will be offered by the Grand Rapids Children’s Museum during their upcoming Military Weekend.
SpartanNash has partnered with the museum for this event in honor of Veterans Day. A military or veteran’s ID will be required for free admission. It is a privilege “to serve those who served,” said Meredith Gremel, SpartanNash spokesperson.
In one of the weekend activities, all children will be able to make cards to be delivered to the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans.
Maggie Lancaster, GRCM executive director, said the museum is glad to be able to give back to the community, “especially to those who have dedicated themselves selflessly by serving in the military.”
The museum at 11 Sheldon Ave. NE is open 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.
