Mayor Bliss Proclaims ‘Connie Kellie Day’ in Grand Rapids
Grand Rapids Mayor Rosalynn Bliss came to us on Thursday morning to surprise Fish and make a very special proclamation.
A little backstory – our dear friend Andy Rent at 100.5 The River spoke to his friend Mayor Bliss after Connie’s death, and together they decided to honor Connie by proclaiming Connie Kellie Day at Grand Rapids.
Steve was surprised, but Fish had no idea what was going to happen.
What does the proclamation say in honor of our friend?
Connie Kellie was a beloved voice on Grand Rapids radio waves. and
Through Connie & Fish’s Christmas Children, she has worked every year to make Christmas a little brighter for children in foster care in West Michigan. and
Her infectious laugh brought a smile to everyone around her. and
She paved the way for women on radio here in West Michigan and across the country.
She died on January 4, 2021 and her loss was felt by all whose lives touched her.
Connie has had an incredible impact on our community that leaves a lasting legacy in our city. Our community is a better place because of their passion, dedication, and tireless work over the years.
Therefore, I, Rosalynn Bliss, Mayor of the City of Grand Rapids, hereby declare March 11, 2021 as the
Connie Kellie Day
in Grand Rapids to posthumously recognize their many contributions to our community.
