REED CITY — It’s a go for the second annual trip to the roller rink in Big Rapids for Norman Elementary School, and two nights are scheduled to make sure everybody gets a chance this year.

The annual November Family Night at Norman promises to be lots of fun, according to coordinator Vicky Bowman, who remembers well last year when more than 600 children and family members were signed up to go. Not only was transportation a challenge, so was the fact that the numbers outnumbered the crowd allowed due to fire safety.

This year more buses are ready and so are the kids. They were already talking about it last week at the Veteran’s Day celebration held at the school and could hardly wait.
