First of all I'd like to Welcome All New Members! Together Let's Discover GR.


As Summer is winding down and our Meetup Group: Discover GR is nearing 200 members I'd just like to say we are working on a number of tours around town both free and entrance fee-based.


Hard to believe it's already six weeks until ArtPrize opening 19 September 2012. We'd like to coordinate some of the tours with ArtPrize happenings.


Some of the tours in the planning stages:

Masonic Temples, Grand Rapids Public Museum and Museum Archives, City of Grand Rapids Archives, Furniture Exhibition Buildings, Harris Building, St. Andrew's Cathedral and Cathedral Square, St. Andrew's Cemetery, Fulton Street Cemetery, Wealthy Theatre and Community Media Center, Federal Square (First YMCA) Building, DeVos Place, Amway Grand/Pantlind Hotel, JW Marriott and Heliport, Helen DeVos Children's Hospital, UICA (Urban Institute of Contemporary Art) Building New Addition, Grand Rapids Art Museum (GRAM), St. Marks Episcopal Church, Fountain Street Church, Michigan Storage/Gypsum Mines, Heritage Hill Homes ... and growing ...


We need your input. What would you like to see so we can prioritize some of our tours.


Thank you. Stay tuned for tours and dates.
