Engadine Consolidated Schools

We had a great day at the Winter Carnival Saturday, February 25. Together, the Polar Plunge participants raised $2,567 for Engadine Consolidated Schools. This event would not occur without the support of the Top of the Lake Communities Association, the Hiawatha Sportsman’s Club, and the Upper Peninsula Sauna Company, and we appreciate them. We also appreciate the Garfield Township EMS, Lance Kerridge, Jefferson Matthews, Chad Germain, and Neil McArthur for all of their assistance. The four-wheeler raffle raised $6,940. Congratulations to Wayne Grant, who won the grand prize. Second prize was a $100 gas card, won by Zach Baker. Third prize of a $50 gas card was won by Matt Birk. Graymont Rexton Project for hosted the community dinner Saturday, as well as donating the grand prize.
