County Pride Concert
The County Pride Concert was held on Sun, May 18 at the NJ-SP High School. It was great! All 3 schools in Starke County came together and made beautiful music. The bands and choirs of all 3 high schools practiced the music separately and came together for the first combined practice on that day! One would never know they hadn’t practiced together before that day. The music was marvelous with a good selection of songs. At the end, the bands and choirs played together with a medley of patriotic songs that warmed the hearts of those in attendance.
A big thank you goes out to the schools, who without them, this couldn’t have taken place. Also, to the teachers, the students and to the Starke County Unity Leadership task force whose leadership through Mary Bendt was able to bring an idea to fruition. Many sponsors helped make this event a reality. Thanks goes out to those that helped with the cost of the t-shirts, the water and programs.
The Leadership group is recruiting members to attend the 2014-15 class. Call the Chamber office at 574-772-5548 or Community Services of Starke County at 574-772-7070 for an application.
