Streaming services like Netflix and Hulu — which each report tens of millions of users — are challenging the status quo and the business model of Hollywood’s film industry. But their impacts have the potential to hit closer to home, in the dwindling number of small-town theaters like those in Grand Ledge, Williamston and Charlotte.
The Capital Area Humane Society held a fundraiser in Grand Ledge earlier this month. The proceeds of the fundraiser will go toward its operations and helping animals in the shelter’s care find their forever home. Kelly Chesser of Grand Ledge is one of the many who have adopted a furry friend from the Capital Area Humane Society.
Cheryl Mulder started Crafting for a Cause in fall 2016 as a way to give back to the Grand Ledge area. Group members spend their time around a large table knitting and talking with one another. They started off making hats and other items. Their finished products go to multiple area charities.
