GRAND RAPIDS – State Representative Winnie Brinks (D-Grand Rapids) has changed the location of her upcoming coffee hour to be held on Friday, July 11 from 1:30-3 p.m. The NEW location of the coffee hour is Schnitz Deli, located at 1315 Fulton St. SE in Grand Rapids. The original site of the coffee hour, Schnitz South Deli, located at 1529 Langley St. SE in Grand Rapids, was heavily damaged in a tornado Sunday night.

“I was devastated to learn that such a thriving local business was so hard-hit by the recent storm,” Brinks said. “I am determined to support Schnitz Deli and its employees while the South location is rebuilt, and I hope residents will join me in supporting this small business in our community. I also welcome anyone who has a question about pending bills or newly passed laws, or who wants to have a conversation about the issues facing our government, to join me at Schnitz Deli.”

The coffee hour will be held:

Friday, July 11, from 1:30-3 p.m. at Schnitz Deli, 1315 Fulton St. SE in Grand Rapids.
