The Staff and Board of Directors of the Grand Rapids Child Discovery Center are proud to announce the official purchase of the former Vandenberg Elementary school at 409 Lafayette, S.E. Lorissa MacAllister, Doreen Bolhuis, and I attended the closing on June 29, 2011. We are sending out an official press release to the media this morning, but wanted to share the news with our community first. Thank you for all of the trust and support you have shown. We look forward to moving forward with all of you as we embark on this next chapter of our story. I hope all of you are having a fun and relaxing summer. Stay cool, enjoy this time, and read a gazillion books! I miss all of you and cannot wait until Orientation on August 31st!
