Many people in the communities of St. Ignace and Cedarville enjoyed performances by St. Ignace and Cedarville students at Jazz Night at LaSalle High School Saturday, March 11. The gymnasium was well decorated especially for the occasion with gold streamers and strings of lights. Local businesses put their creative efforts into supplying unique table decorations. It was an enjoyable program.

This past Tuesday, March 7, brought high winds and many delays and damage from fallen trees throughout Michigan. I spoke with David Holly, a former resident of St. Ignace and graduate of LaSalle High School, who now resides in Allen Park with his family. He reported that the schools in Allen Park, where he coaches and teaches social studies, were still closed as of Friday, March 10.

Henry Grondin, Jr. of Cheboygan says hello to family and friends. He is a 1966 graduate of LaSalle High School.

Belated birthday wishes to Tony Grondin March 6 and Mike North March 9.
