Lakers saving taxpayers money!

 At the February meeting, the board approved a bond refinancing/refunding resolution that’s set to benefit taxpayers in a big way — by saving them about $650,000. Representatives from the Thrun Law Firm presented details on the refinancing, saying “it’s an opportunity to (do away with) old bonds at higher interest rates that ultimately results in lower millage rates for taxpayers.” This does not impact the district's budget.

The Moxie Strings to perform with Laker strings group

The Michigan-based group The Moxie Strings will be in concert at 6:30 p.m. April 22 in the Elkton-Pigeon-Bay Port Laker High School auditorium. The new 24-member Laker Strings Club members will be performing with the group. The Laker group includes players from fourth grade through 12th grade.

The Moxie Strings first came to Lakers earlier  this school year to jump start the strings club as part of a grant from the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs. They performed for elementary and secondary students.

The grant also paid for the purchase of close to 20 violins.

Since then, the Laker strings group has taken off, and the group practices once a week after school under the direction of Samantha Corrion, band director.

During their stay, the Moxie Strings will be working with the Laker strings group and performing assemblies. They also will be having dinner with strings group  members before the concert.

Everyone is welcome to attend the concert.

The Laker strings group members include Lindsey Steele, Lauren Scaddan, Heidi Keim, Hannah Keim, Savannah Schultz, Rachel Schember, Nicole Hagan, Lydia Esh, Bryn Esh, Cheyanne Kociba, Chris Potter, Andrew Davis, Derek Moreno, Joy Bonke, Madelyn Rusch, Sayge Ackerman, Tia Zhang, Aubrey Dickens, Martha Moreno, Galen Miller, Ella Esh, Josie Born, Michaela Love and Kim Holzwart.
