At Comprehensive Ear and Hearing, we are committed to serving the Grand Haven community of Michigan. We believe that treating hearing loss and promoting hearing health is an important part of healthy relationships. Now in February, love is in the air. Treating hearing loss is more than bolstering your own hearing health – it helps sustain your most important relationships.
People with untreated hearing loss are more likely to become socially withdrawn, due to difficulties with communication and speech recognition. Over time, untreated hearing loss could lead to a heightened risk of depression, anxiety, and isolation. On the other hand, people who treat their hearing loss with the use of hearing aids remain connected with their loved ones and their communities.
Here in Grand Haven, we have a tight-knit community with a rich calendar of cultural events. We take a look at the events this February, around Valentine’s Day, and review great things to hear (and do) in our town.
Wine & Chocolate with Patricia’s Chocolates and Lemon Creek Wines
To celebrate love in the air, Patricia’s Chocolates and Lemon Creek Wines have come together for a special pairing on weekends in the month of February. Located at the Grand Haven Tasting Rooms (327 N. Beacon Boulevard), Wine & Chocolate will be held February 9-11, February 16-18, and February 23-25. Tickets are $14/person. For more information, call 616-844-1709.
Rotary Snow Jam, February 9-10, Spring Lake, Michigan
Since 2012, the Rotary Snow Jam is a winter favorite in the area. The event raises funds for Spring Lake Rotary’s service initiatives, with 100% of the proceeds invested toward events that bring positive and lasting changes to the community. With fun for the entire family, the Rotary Snow Jam combines games, live entertainment in a hated tent, with drinks and food available for purchase, ice-skating, live music, and even a dart tournament. For more information, visit their website here.

Vinyl Night at the Grand Armory Brewing, Every Wednesday

Muskegon Museum of Art: Evening Open Public Tours
Muskegon has a colorful history as the “Lumber Queen of the World,” with nearly 50 sawmills and over 40 millionaires. After the boom slowed down, many lumber barons moved away, but one remained: Charles H. Hackley. Hackley began to invest in Muskegon, improving the community with gifts such as the Public Library, a city park, and investments in Muskegon’s public school system. Before his death, he did not realize his dream of opening an art gallery, but he did leave a generous trust known as the Hackley Picture Fund, to be used for “pictures of the best kind.”
For the art lover in your life, what could be more fascinating than a tour of the Muskegon Museum of Art’s “pictures of the best kind”? The Museum’s collection is diverse, spanning many different schools of art, across many different cultures and countries. Join for a guided tour. If you plan a visit before Valentine’s Day, don’t miss out on their postcard exhibition running through February 15! More details here. February 22, 5-7pm, The Muskegon Museum of Art, 296 W. Webster Ave, Muskegon.
