Editor's Pick: Step Up and Fling!
It's a tough call. This weekend, you have two great chances to have fun, meet great people and build your community.
You can join Capital region AmeriCorps
members for a day of volunteer service during the "Step Up Lansing: Get Things Done for Our Community
" event on Saturday, working right alongside AmeriCorps members on a range of small service projects around the region. Opportunities range from park clean-ups to serving meals, landscaping to recycling.
It's also a great chance to learn about AmeriCorps and its many programs in the area. Check out the website for more details: www.stepuplansing.org
Or, if you're in the mood for something a bit more medieval, check out Trebuchet Day
, where teams of students will test their homemade, eight-foot tall trebuchets by launching water filled milk jugs at several targets in the field behind the Marshall Street Armory in Lansing.
Trebuchet Day was developed by MSU
