Dryden schools projects, music fundraiser

The latest issue of the Dryden Courier leads with the passing of the EXCEL capital project, and announces a fundraiser for the Dryden Music Boosters on April 21st from 7:00pm to 9:30pm in the Dryden Middle School/High School gym. They'll have donated desserts, door prizes, and of course, music. Beyond Measure and the middle school and high school jazz ensembles will all be performing.

There are two profiles of people from Dryden. One looks at Dryden senior Wes Anderson, who is the student representative to the school board, and the other visits Stefanie Crandall, a Dryden graduate who is now teaching English in Ukraine.

Matt Cooper's Inside Dryden column looks at how Good Friday isn't that celebrated in the US compared to other countries, though Dryden schools started spring break then. He also reports on Hall Pass, the Dryden teachers' band. There's a picture of Barbara Rosevear hanging Easter eggs on a tree in front of her house.

Sports Around the Lake notes Dryden Baseball's loss to Lansing, and notes that the team is mostly underclassmen this year. Dryden Softball also lost, 4-3, and Dryden Lacrosse lost 17-1, but it was their first game as a varsity lacrosse team ever.

In the Groton section of the paper, I was delighted to see that the Village of Groton is developing improvements for their website, including areas that collect feedback rather than just provide information. Hopefully more municipalities will follow their lead.
