HOLLAND, Mich. (WZZM)-Hope College celebrated its first home football game of the season with the help of the Holland community.
Former Mayor Nelson Bosman founded Hope/Holland Community Day in 1966, as a way to unite his city and the college. Saturday, visitors enjoyed free games, musical performances, and met the mascot before Hope played its first home game in the newly renovated stadium, which it shares with Holland High School.
Holland's city manager says Hope and Holland have a long standing relationship, which includes student internships with the city and college lectures by the city mayor.
"We're the envy of the nation. We have universities from Illinois and Ohio coming here to try to find out how we make the city and college cooperate so well. This is just one example," said Holland City Manager Ryan Cotton.
This was the 47th year for the Hope/Holland Community Day
