Community members and friends of this year's essay contest students are invited to join us in celebrating growing up in Benzie County. Under the direction of Frankfort-Elberta teachers Dave Jackson and Rebecca Hubbard, students studied excerpts from Bruce Catton's book, "Waiting for the Morning Train." Using their own personal experiences, the students try to capture specific local details along with sensory nuances in their essays. The essays are presented in dramatic readings by adult volunteers, many who have worked with the event since it began in 2007. There is no charge for this event. All are welcome. Refreshments will be served. For additional information, call Kay Bos at 815-953-9483.
