I am a Realtor® in north western Michigan. I work mostly in the Grand Traverse and Kalkaska County area, but I can help you buy or sell property in a 5 county area: Antrim, Grand Traverse, Kalkaska, Benzie, & Leelanau.
My son recently attended the three-day TBA Tech Camp. This year he took welding. He made a great metal stool. I am really impressed with the TBA's camp they put on every year. It is definitely worth the small fee for the classes.
The kids have over a dozen of classes to choose from to include: Autobody painting, computer training, cooking classes, Robotics, CSI training and much, much more.
Forest Area Schools had their music program cut from the curriculum.
After a very emotional school board meeting the members of the board reluctantly cut the music program from their schools from K-12.
This is a great disappointment to the young men and women who practiced daily to enhance their playing skills.
Parents, teachers and the community are trying to come up with a way to bring back the program for the Fall semester. Meanwhile some families are looking to register their children in other local schools who have managed to retain their band program. It is a very discouraging situation which I hope can be resolved soon for our musically talented children.
I picked up a listing recently in Fife Lake. This home is directly across the street from the lake and walking distance to both parks in the village and the beach. This would make a great full time or summer home. The owner is looking to sell it fully furnished if somebody is looking for a summer home. It doesn't have a lot of furniture, but there are beds, tables and couches. Everything you would need to enjoy your summer by the lake. Only $94,900.
