Eastown Community Association Hosts Annual Meeting & Pancake Breakfast

Eastown, Grand Rapids, Mich. – On Saturday, February 13, the Eastown Community Association (ECA) will host its annual meeting and community pancake breakfast. The ECA invites Eastown residents to learn about the work the ECA is doing and how they can get more involved in their community. The event will run from 8:30 am – 10:30 am at Calvin Christian Reformed Church, located at 700 Ethel Ave SE.

The event will include a pancake breakfast, ECA updates, raffle prizes and presentations from ECA board members. Additionally, attendees will have the opportunity to vote for the new board members. Local businesses, GRPS and other organizations will be on hand to deliver presentations and to interact with members of the community. ECA merchandise, including shirts, water bottles and stickers, will be on sale.

“The annual pancake breakfast is not only a great opportunity for socialization among neighbors, friends and businesses, but also a chance for people to become more active within the Eastown community,” said Sandahl. “Events like this are a fun way for us to keep our residents engaged and updated on Eastown events.”
