Summer Party benefits scholarships
Members of the Clay High School class of 1969 will hold a Summer Party to raise funds for a scholarship to be presented as a gift from the class.
The party will be held July 28 from 4 to 10 p.m. at Oak Shade Grove, near the clubhouse. Admission is $20 per person, payable at the door, which includes dinner and the opportunity to socialize with friends and classmates. A cash bar will be available.
When John Nuckols, Bradner Road, read that the Lake Township trustees decided to not purchase two new grass trimmers for the township cemetery due to a tight budget, he decided to donate two new trimmers to the township.
He told the trustees he has relatives buried at the cemetery on Walbridge Road, including a son.
