BIG RAPIDS\u00a0\u2014 The time is ripe to think fall, and the\u00a0Spectrum Health Big Rapids Hospital Auxiliary is making it easy for residents to pick up their pumpkins and mums. The auxiliary's annual pumpkin and mum sale will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 28, at the Big Rapids Hospital entrance. The sale is one of the largest fundraisers of the year for the group, which is\u00a0501(c)3 nonprofit that regularly provides scholarships and donates funds to the Spectrum Health Big Rapids and Reed City Hospitals Foundation. The foundation raises money to provide both facilities with needed items from IV rods to audiovisual equipment. Pumpkins of all sizes and mums of all colors will be available for purchase and are locally grown.
