October Events

It is September which means inter alia (my lawyer word for the day), there is little hope that the Lions will salvage their season; a few weeks from now, Cubs fans will have their dreams dashed in some “unforeseen” way (we know the little bears will grab defeat from the jaws of victory, but we don’t know how), and yes, the YLS year is underway!

Here is what we are working for October:

  • YLS Happy Hour, Thursday, October 2, 6:00 p.m.  Come join YLS at Hopcat (25 Ionia Ave SW # 1, Grand Rapids, MI 49503).  The first 15 people to arrive will receive their first drink on YLS (fine print: provided that the cost of such drink is within reason, as determined solely by YLS).
  • YLS Meeting, Wednesday, October 8, at 12:00 p.m.  The speaker for the October meeting is Kim Coleman, the Executive Director of the Grand Rapids Bar Association.  Come meet Kim and discover the many services and opportunities available to young lawyers through the GRBA.  The meeting is at Warner Norcross & Judd 111 Lyon Street NW, Suite 900 Grand Rapids, Michigan 49503.  Lunch, pizza and soft drinks, are on YLS.  No RSVP is necessary.
  • GRBA Benefit DinnerWednesday, October 22.   The Grand Rapids Bar Association and The Justice Foundation of West Michigan Benefit Dinner.  This year’s speaker is Dr. Ronan Tynan, physician, Paralympic record-holder, and Irish Tenor. Dr. Tynan will speak and give a short performance.  Tickets to this event are $60 for GRBA Members, $85 for non-Members. To register for the event, please click here. 
  • Doughnuts, Hayrides and More! Saturday, October 25, time TBA.  Come join YLS for a family friendly event at Robinette’s Apple Orchard.  We are planning the event around the Michigan v. Michigan State football game, also known as the battle for the Paul Bunyan – Governor of Michigan Trophy.  Game time will be announced two weeks before the game, so stay tuned.
