The life of a military family can be a difficult one. Many families are forced to spend months apart from their loved ones and it can become stressful. The American Red Cross of Greater Grand Rapids provides many services to these families all year around. As a way to say "thanks," on Saturday, March 13, the Red Cross will be providing a FREE way for military members and their families to unwind and have fun!

The American Red Cross of Greater Grand Rapids is hosting a FREE ice skating social for military members and their families on Saturday, March 13 from 3:00 to 5:00 pm at the Patterson Ice Center (2550 Patterson Ave.).

This FREE event will include food, drinks, free skating and skate rental, games, prizes and live music by Jessica Andrus and Kyle Gifford. Military members and their families are invited to attend as a way to socialize and have fun!
