Paddle down, up the Cedar River

Wildlife and wildflowers and maybe a great blue heron are on the agenda at a bring-your-own-kayakor canoe event being sponsored at 7 p.m. Friday by the Cedar Area Community Foundation. Meet at the boat launch in Cedar for a peaceful paddle down the Cedar River. Don’t forget to bring a personal flotation device.

Lions ready for big yard sale

Members of the Cedar/Maple City Lions Club are preparing for their annual yard sale from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Lions Community Building in Maple City. Baked goods will also be sold, but come early as they don’t last long. Proceeds fund Lions’ projects such as scholarships, sight and hearing assistance and Leader Dog programs. Donations of sale items will be taken at the hall from 6-8 p.m. Friday. Call 228-7021 or 228-5257 to have items picked up.

Artists head outside for Plein Air events

Watch for artists in and around Northport Saturday and Sunday in the Plein Air Paintout. Then at 5:30 p.m. Sunday head to the Village Arts Building for a reception and display of work. You can even snag one of those paintings, which may still be wet. The event is sponsored by the Northport Arts Association. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door.

Busy this weekend? The Glen Arbor Art Association is preparing for its Plein Air event Aug. 3-5.
