Between 4 and 5 p.m. that day, 1,000 “flying saucers” dropped out of the sky and onto the city. But it was no Roswell. No aliens were sighted, and the only wreckage recovered throughout the city was made from paper.

The stunt was performed by First Reformed Church as a promotion for their vacation Bible school. The “saucers” were paper plates dropped from an airplane that took off from Grand Haven Airport, commanded by the Rev. Bernard Brunsting, a veteran wartime B-17 bomber pilot. The co-pilot was Kenneth Lestma, assistant pastor of the church. He flew with a rescue squadron in Japan shortly after World War II....

....Other UFO sightings in Grand Haven remain unidentified and a mystery to this day....the saucers of First Reformed Church remains the largest “invasion” of its kind in Grand Haven history, and was anything but a mystery.
