College Colors Day was held last year  on August 31. 

This year it is on Aug 30 from 6-8 pm in the Spanish Springs Town Square.  

CANCELED due to Weather Concerns



It’s that time of year again, to show ourselves and the rest of the Villages what Michigan State fans are capable of achieving together. 


The annual spirit day food drive is approaching, and Sharon and Don Hand have agreed to stockpile and deliver our collections. They are available to receive your food. If you would like them to shop for you this year, you may send them a check (very soon, we hope) at the address below made out to “Sharon Hand”. 


Spirit Day is Friday, August 30th. We will arrange for a photo-op on Wednesday the 28th at 1:00 pm (subject to further notice). 


Our objective this year is to get over 2,000 pounds. The arithmetic shows that if 50+ households donated or spent $20.00 each, we’d be on target. Pat Jacobs has done a study and determined that $0.50 per pound is operable for a lot of canned goods. However, we should all let our own tastes (pardon the pun) be our guide on both weight and cost. Let’s, once again, show our colors by going GREEN.








Thanks in advance for your generosity.

Over 40,000 pounds of food were collected last year. That is 20 tons of food donated to the local food pantry.
