Friday has traditionally been a day to take off and do something fun for the SERVE participants. For Muskegon SERVE, that means a day at the Grand Haven State Park, with its beautiful beach and picturesque pier. The beach is connected to downtown Grand Haven via a nice walk along the Grand River (Grand Haven is where the Grand empties into Lake Michigan). Both the riverwalk and downtown boast various sights, artwork, and some good shopping.
Alas, today was a red flag day at the beach, which means “there is the potential for rip currents, powerful currents that can pull swimmers out into deep water.” Consequently swimming was ruled out, so most of the participants took the opportunity to explore around town. Even though Muskegon SERVE is fast coming to a close, keep checking back for photos from the day off as well as the last few videos.
