1. A new family-friendly movie series is coming to West Michigan. "Moo-vies From The Mound", presented by Milk Means More, will be held at Fifth Third Ballpark.

Beginning next Thursday, groups of up to six people can watch the movies from a 12-by-12-foot plot in the outfield lawn. If the showings sell out, the stadium will only be using less than 8 percent of its total capacity.

Some of the movies include "Angels in the Outfield" and "Night at the Museum."

Group tickets are $35 online and can be purchased on

2. Greater Ottawa United Way is asking for donations for its annual Stuff The Bus Drive.

They're looking for backpacks filled with learning supplies, both in-person and virtual, as well as things like hand sanitizer and masks.

They can be dropped off at Community Action House on West 14th Street in Holland until August 3.

If you can't make it, but you'd still like to donate, text the non-profit or visit their website.

3. Libraries around West Michigan have been getting creative, and Otsego Public Library is one of those that sill wants to ensure they're still serving the community as best they can.

They just opened last Monday, for four hours a day. They have also been doing some virtual programs and their summer reading program, but recently added the opportunity to pick up a weekly craft for your child or teen.

Every week it changes, and it's based on their theme this summer: imagine your story.

The craft projects can be picked up through their drive-thru window.

4. Pillsbury is making it easier than ever to enjoy a warm bite of a southern classic.

Their new cornbread swirls come ready-to-bake in a circular package, much like their cinnamon rolls and biscuits. Once it's opened, it's as easy as separating the swirls; placing them in a greased muffin pan, and popping them in the oven.

In 13-17 minutes, you'll have six round, muffin-like cornbread swirls that you'll want to cut in half and load with butter.

Pillsbury says it's the easiest way to make cornbread with minimal mess and prep time.

5. Need a smile? Then this is the perfect story for you!

Kellie Carlsen thought she would never cuddle with her furry friend Mocha again.

Mocha went missing 13 years ago, but then she got a call recently that animal shelter in town had a cat who was microchip linked to the Carlsen's. Turns out, it was Mocha!

Turns out, a woman in the area had been feeding a stray cat for a decade-not knowing- this was no stray.

But when she packed up to move, she was worried the cat would go hungry. Little did she know, her rescue would turn into a reunion.
