Wow, after that long fine column that Maxine wrote last week, and thinking that this is the third column I have sent in the last month, with some heavy lifting from the community on one of them of course, this is going to be short. However, all that reflection causes me to remember that we are still missing one newswriter. How about you? Once a month, an easy gig, and you can write all the run-on sentences you like. Call any one of us.
Spring band concert is Monday, May 18, under the direction of Doug Anderson. This is a multi-part concert, with performances by the High School Concert Band, the High School Jazz Band, the Middle School Band, and the Beginning Band. Highly recommended.
Good Luck, Destination Imagination. Their trip starts on May 19 for Knoxville, Tenn., to compete over a three-day period. Sixteen people from Trout Lake, including the team, are going. Thanks to the many people who have sent donations for trip expenses. The fundraising goal was about $8000, and about $5000 has been raised. If you are inclined to make a donation, send it to the Trout Lake School, P.O. Box 488 and indicate that it's for DI.
We're a traveling town, or at least our students are. The excellent Village Voice has a big spread on the Science Club and Honor Society's trip to Greece, where it appears that both ancient and modern Greece were strikingly different from the Trout Lake norm.
State track is May 28-30, and Trout Lake Glenwood will be there in force. If you've been following the team in the Enterprise, you know that we have a really strong team again and high hopes for great performances at state. Go team! And I see that our equestrian team is heading for state on May 14. Would somebody send us some news about that?
Closer to home, 40 students participated, with two professional actors from the Missoula Children's Theater, in Rumplestiltskin, an amazing accomplishment for such a short span of days.
After the fantastic show in January with his band Lucky Finn, Trout Laker Lincoln Crockett returns to the Trout Lake Grange on Saturday, May 30, with jazz/blues virtuoso Jim McKeon on guitar. The night begins with a community potluck starting at 6. Please bring a dish to share and your own drink and dishes. Music goes from 6:30-9. Show is all ages. Kids and dancing are encouraged. Cost: $8 at the door, kids 12 and under are free.
We hope the Grange sale went well, and we can hardly wait to see the new floor finish shining along with the music on May 30.
Here's a distant early warning about a fall event. The Presbytery Eco-Justice team is sponsoring a Creation Care Fellowship Gathering in Trout Lake, Sept. 19. Author Jane Kirkpatrick is featured. The theme is caring for the land through our relationships with God and neighbors. It will be followed by a writers' workshop.
I don't know if the May Village Voice is the last of this year, but whenever the last issue is, I'll miss this set of writers. I've learned a lot from reading the Village Voice this year. Good job, and teach next year's group well. Pat Arnold, newswriter.
