High School OT.com - Three Holiday Invitational alums taken in NBA Draft
Wings Stadium is the home of the Kalamazoo Wings ECHL hockey team and a major entertainment venue. Wings West has two ice rinks for public skating and has an Old Burdick's restaurant/tavern. The property has about 70 employees, full- and part-time, who are now employees of the new owner. Rayman said Ellen Markle, manager of the Holiday Inn in Grand Rapids, has become general manager of the property. The Old Burdick's West restaurant there will continue to operate under that name for another year, until the property's new owners decide what direction to take with the food and beverage venue. In the press release, Michael Oswald, corporate director of food and beverage for Greenleaf Hospitality Group, said, "Kalamazoo Hotel Group has great plans for redeveloping the hotel's restaurant with a fresh look and will continue to provide the same great service provided to our guests. Moving forward, we will continue to grow Burdick's both downtown and Wings West locations as a successful sports bar and dining experience." Greenleaf Hospitality Group bought the Holiday Inn in 2004 and its franchise agreement with Holiday Inn is expected to expire at the end of this year.

They soon recognized the need for similar programming for girls, and, in 1998, Dr. Susan Wilcox joined the leadership team and helped to expand the organization to include programs for young women. It is now a comprehensive and holistic youth development organization serving black and Latino youth ages 822. BroSis is organized into gender-specific chapters where young men and women have a safe space to express their fears, their concerns, to learn what it means to be a brother, a leader, a man as well as a sister, a leader, a woman, and how to be brothers and sisters to each other. Our young people are active participants in creating an anti-misogynistic community that recognizes, values and respects the full humanity of their brothers and sisters.
