Three generations enjoyed this girls night out on Wednesday, November 18. Twins Cassie and Olivia Stallmer, 10, were with their grandmother, Ann Holman, of Spring Lake, sister Selene, 17, and mom Kerri.

Ann said she was in town to watch her grandson play basketball for Rockford and is crazy about the town.

“It’s just the perfect town,” she said. “It’s just the right size to walk around and shop. I love the layout of the stores and how unique it is here. The dam is just nice, that is the aesthetic part of it.” Ann said she has never been to downtown Rockford before but will certainly be back. “We don’t have anything like this in Spring Lake,” she said.

Selene, who attends Rockford High School, said she’ never been to the lighting ceremony before and thought it was wonderful.

When the family was approached to do the photo and interview, the twins asked if they could go get their mother and sister to be in the picture too. That’s sweet.
