Les Cheneaux

By Robert W. Smith

Sarah Slater has opened her new business, Arborvitae Salon and Spa. The salon is at 361 East M- 134 just east of Cedarville High School on the north side of the road. The salon is in a spacious building with large windows and is bright and cheerful. Kim Wilderspin will also be offering Reiki Energy Healing sessions.

The Les Cheneaux Community Schools Music Boosters will sponsor their 19th annual spaghetti dinner fundraiser Friday, February 3, at the school cafeteria in Cedarville. The meal will be served from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., before the boys varsity basketball game between Cedarville and Pickford. Cost is $7 for adults and children 11 and older and $4 for children 10 and younger. Takeout dinners will be available. This will be a fun time to visit with your friends and enjoy a good dinner. All proceeds will benefit the Cedarville bands.

Jon and Sharrie Steinbach and Bob and Mary Rogers enjoyed a several-day trip to the Lower Peninsula recently.

Congratulations to all the players and coaches.

Shirley Jellison is feeling much better and has returned to Cedar Cove Assisted Living after being hospitalized for a few days. Please keep Shirley in your thoughts and prayers.

All is well at the Great Lakes Boat Building School. The firstyear students are building six boats and refinishing one. The second-year students are finishing three boats, two of which are being constructed and one is a restoration. They are looking forward to participating in Snowsfest Friday, February 17, through Sun- day, February 19. Private tours may be arranged, or information on their upcoming workshops may be obtained by contacting the school at (906) 484-1081 or visiting their Web site at www.glbbs.org.

With the new improvements near the school, it’s great to see where many people are able to drive up the hill in front of the gymnasium and get out and enter just a couple of steps from the doors. People really appreciate not having to climb up the steep hill. In addition, it is so much easier for the school buses to load and unload there and then turn around.
