GR Parish on Closing List not closing soon

GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) - Reverend Charles Dautremont has been the pastor at St. Dominic in Wyoming for the last 16 of his 52 years in the priesthood.  St. Dominic was on the list released Thursday by the Diocese of Grand Rapids as closing "when pastor retires."

Father Dautremont, who turns 78 soon, has no plans to retire.  "Obviously if something changes health-wise - if I get senile somebody will inform me that I'm senile and will remove me but - there are no signs of any of that," he joked to WZZM 13's Peter Ross.

So, parishioners at St. Dominic need not look for a new church anytime soon, it seems.

RHS Theatre Program presents 'On the Town' April 19,20 & 21

From: http://www.wyoming.k12.mi.us

Theatre students at Rogers High School are busy preparing for this year's musical, On the Town. The actors and musicians involved have made tremendous progress in rehearsals so far, and everyone is looking forward to performing.

On the Town is the story of three sailors with a 24 hour pass in the New York City of the 1940's. They have only one day to explore the city, but soon decide to split up in order to find the lovely "Miss Turnstiles." Each of the three meets someone during their quest, and the whole group sets out to take in the night life of New York City.Misunderstandings and mistakes follow our sailors every step of the way, and a great time is had by all.

Wyoming Michigan residents warned of Water Service Offer

Wyoming Michigan residents warned of Water Service Offer

Recently, residents of the City of Wyoming may have received a letter from HomeServe, an independent home repair company, regarding purchasing water service line coverage to protect them in case of a water service line repair or replacement. This coverage is completely unnecessary because Wyoming residents are not responsible for these costs and residents are advised to disregard this letter.

Should you have any questions regarding this matter, please call the Public Works Department at 616-530-7260
