The event is slated for 1-3:30 p.m. Saturday, May 12. Teams of 4-6 people, ages 8 and older, will stop by venues in downtown Grand Haven where they will complete tasks. The first team to complete all of the tasks will be named the winner. The teams will receive clues to figure out venues where they will complete various tasks. Participants can register online at The cost to register is $35 a person. While registration is open now though May 5, organizers won't be able to guarantee shirts for participants registered after Monday, April 30, according to Jeff Troupe, a member of the Reimagine Project's accessibility steering committee. Teams will pick up their packets between 11:45 a.m. and 12:45 p.m. on race day at the Grand Haven Community Center, 421 Columbus Ave., where they will begin and end their adventure. Packets will include a bag, T-shirt and other items for participants. Food will also be available following the event. Troupe, a special-education teacher at Grand Haven High School, noted that roads won't be 'Amazing Race' set for May 12 REIMAGINE PROJECT Jeanne's Cafe has been resurrected, in a way, into the new Two Yolks Cafe. Jessica Zajac, who started working as a waitress more than a decade ago at Jeanne's Cafe in Grand Haven, has opened a breakfast/lunch business of her own. And it is located at the former Jeanne's Cafe site, most recently occupied by Buc's Cafe, at 949 Robbins Road. "I've been in the industry for 20 years, but I've never owned anything," Zajac said of her restaurant-owning endeavor. Many former Jeanne's fans have visited Two Yolks Cafe to enjoy their old-time favorite menu items. "I've been a stay-at-home mom for the past eight months," Zajac said. "I've always wanted to do this. Jeanne's was closed for like a year and a half before it turned into Buc's. I worked at Buc's. We have some of Jeanne's favorites back." Two Yolks will continue as a breakfast-and-lunch-only diner. It is open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. "Over the years, Jeanne's had built a nice clientele and they love Jeanne's menu," Zajac said. "We're slow roasting our own meats and cutting our own steaks. My chef is amazing." Two Yolks' executive chef is Chad Weyek, who worked for Jeanne's Cafe for eight years. "It's been an adventure," Weyek said of his Two Yolks gig. Tending to a turkey Reuben sandwich on the grill, he added, "We've been busy and it's been a lot of fun." Many of the staff members also worked at Jeanne's, Zajac said. "We're close here," she said. "I worked with most of these people for many years, so we've built relationships." Some of Jeanne's selections dot the Two Yolks menu, including Key West Browns. The menu also includes breakfast staples such as eggs Benedict, omelettes, French toast and pancakes, as well as specialties such as homemade carnitas, and chorizo and hash Tribune photo/Marie Havenga Two Yolks Cafe is open in the former Buc's Cafe/Jeanne's Cafe space on Robbins Road.

'It just brings so much joy' COMEDIAN/MUSICIAN STRIKES A CHORD WITH SANCTUARY AT THE SHORE RESIDENTS Tribune photo/Marie Havenga Quist sings old-time tunes for residents at Sanctuary at the Shore on Monday afternoon. I t was all about smiles and laughter Monday afternoon at Sanctuary at the Shore in Grand Haven. Dressed as the Little Dutch Girl, Wilma Quist sang and joked her way through an hour of entertainment for residents of the local skilled nursing facility. Quist, who was born in the Netherlands, has been performing at churches, independent, assisted and skilled nursing facilities since 1991. Besides her wooden shoes, Dutch hat and dress, Quist brought the south dining room to life with seriously funny jokes and tunes from eras long ago. She relayed a facetious story about how she went to Russ' Restaurant the other day and was talking to a waitress who told her the big difference between a Dutchman and a canoe. Quist deadpanned, "Canoes tip." She told the Sanctuary crowd she recently learned the true history of the Grand Canyon — "The canyon was started by a Dutchman who COMMUNITY BY MARIE HAVENGA BY MARIE HAVENGA BY KRYSTLE WAGNER WANT TO GO?
