Half-Day Events

Half-Day Events

Each year, we work with local communities, tourism organizations and universities for smaller regionally based projects.

On Saturday, March 30, a small group of GVSU Hospitality & Tourism Management Alumni joined us at 22 Sheldon (the original home office of West Michigan Tourist Association), to help us in the continued restoration efforts of this building in Veteran’s Memorial Park. This small (but mighty) group of women worked so hard and really helped us tackle some of the tasks on our to-do list.
