Security cameras have been donated to the City of Hastings and installed at the Thornapple Plaza by Riverside Integrated Systems, Inc. of Grand Rapids.
Tom Kramer, president of Riverside, said he decided to donate the security system because he was impressed with how Thornapple Plaza has brought the community together.
“I was very impressed to see how individuals worked with the community to create the plaza and make things happen,” he said. “I am from the big city and it’s really great to see people in smaller cities come together to support music and the arts, which make communities thrive.
“Hastings had security needs and I thought, I can help, why not be a part of what is happening?”
“The City of Hastings greatly appreciates Riverside’s donation,” said Hastings Police Chief Jeff Pratt. “The Hastings system will help protect a valuable asset to our community.”
