LUTHER NEWS: Fundraiser auction set for Saturday

I remind you once again, that the Luther Days Fireworks Fundraiser auction will take place on Saturday, at the Luther Lions building. The doors will open at 6 p.m. with the auction starting at 7 p.m., ending at midnight. The cost is a $10 donation at the door. Bring a dish to pass and BYOB. Music will be provided by the Guitar College and all proceeds support the fireworks display at Luther Logging Days in July. Auction items are needed and can be dropped off at the library or the Gift Shop.

The first rehearsal of the Community Choir was held on Monday at 6:30 p.m. at the Luther Senior Center. It is not too late to join in. Both women and men’s voices are needed. Being able to read music is not necessary to join. The purpose is to have a good time. If you have any questions, feel free to call Debbie at (231) 797-5567.

The second annual “Mad Hatter Un-birthday/Tea Party” will be held at the Luther Library on Saturday, April 28, beginning at 2 p.m. Come dressed as your favorite Alice In Wonderland character if you’d like. Judges will be awarding prizes for costumes. There will be lots of treats, sandwiches, cakes, cookies, snacks and, of course, tea! The Disney cartoon version of “Alice in Wonderland” will be shown on the big screen for all to enjoy.

The Luther Hardware has reopened. The new owners are Lonnie and Lydia Rives. Luther really needs a hardware store and we are happy that they are open. We wish them well.

Representative Bumstead has been holding “Office Hours” at the library. His next scheduled date is on Monday at 2 p.m. Meet Rep. Bumstead and discuss any issues or concerns you may wish to share with him.

Thought for the week: One of the tests of leadership is the ability to recognize a problem before it becomes an emergency.

Have a great week.
