White Creek Floral Club

Eighteen members and friends of the White Creek Floral Club enjoyed seeing "Black River Showboat" at Croswell on Thursday evening. The home talent acts were very good, and contained much comedy. The radio and TV entertainers came highly recommended and provided excellent entertainment.

The group of home town people sponsoring the show provided transportation for two bus loads of muscular dystrophy patients who are vacationing at Camp Worden near Lexington. High school students volunteered to wheel all of these unfortunate youngsters to good positions near the stage. A good display of fire works also enhanced the "Showboat" and its many passengers as it approached the stage

School Opens Tuesday, Sept. 8th.

With the opening of school only a short time away it is important for parents and students to note the following items:

Busses will travel their regular routes, beginning at 7:30 on Tuesday, September 8. It will probably be necessary to adjust the routes later in order to balance the loads on each bus. Students will leave school at 11:00 for the trip home.

On Wednesday the Elementary and High School grades 10, 11, 12 will report for enrollment.

The book rental fee of $5.00 per child will be effective for all children in grades K-12. In the grades K thru 6 this fee will cover all the costs of textbooks and workbooks. In the grades 7 thru 12 there may be additional fees for practice sets, shop cards, laboratory fees in special classes.

The hot lunch program will begin on Thursday, September 10. It is anticipated that the cost of the lunches will be increased to 30 cents per day or $1.50 per week.

The new addition to the elementary school will be completed by August 21, so there will be ample space to properly house all students. The Block School has been sold and will not be used as a classroom.
