TBA Cool Tech Camp a Success!

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.
This summer's camp is completed but bookmark their link: TBA Summer Tech Camp


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.

Forest Area Little League

 Forest Area Little League is having a great season.  So far they have won more games than lost which is always good.  Next week is their final week of games.

Great home on Fife Lake for sale

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.

Forest Area Warriors Pop Warner Football team has a fantastic season!

I was able to capture a really nice photo of the moon over beautiful Perch Lake in Kalkaska County.  This was taken a few hours before sunrise.

Pop Warner Football

        My son had his first Pop Warner Football game.  He was very excited.  He was especially happy when his team won.  The score was Forest Area 18 to  Boyne City 14.

Both teams did a great job.  I only wish it wasn't pouring rain during the entire game.

I found this game more exciting than any professional game I have ever watched.  It is amazing how having a son on the team can get you fired up about the game!
