May 2017

On May 7, we held a special dinner/dance to honor our 50 and 75-year members. Joe Sovis presented Irene Jancarik, Wilma Wesley, and Kimberly Francis with their 50-year pins and a Western bag. Stephen Zemcik, Sr. accepted the 50-year pin on behalf of his son, Stephen Zemcik, Jr. Janet Grace was our 75-year member honored.

A spring fling was held on May 19 for all of Shiawassee County RESD students at the hall. Students, teachers, and parents had a wonderful time dancing and singing to the music provided by Sound Wavz Entertainment. Snacks and lemonade were enjoyed, as well as a photo booth.

We are having a roast pork dinner on July 16. Dinner will be served from noon to 2 p.m. with take outs available. Call Janet at 989-723-5926 or Joe at 517-290-1015 by July 14 to reserve your spot. Proceeds go to local charities and the furnace fund. The public is welcome to attend.
