For several years, individual members of the GT Dems have supported the Blue Tiger Project, which provides food, goods and money to the school’s food pantry. The pantry provides much needed nourishment to students who need extra help. Democrats Marge Forgione , Joel Casler, Donna Miller and Gretchen Iorio attended the event, this year and last.
On Thursday, January 25, Traverse City High School hosted an “appreciation event” to thank community members and organizations for their donations to the high school. The evening featured a delicious pasta and salad bar, followed by an art show created by TC High School students. Entertainment was provided by the Traverse City High School Choir. Guests were encouraged to vote on their favorite art entries and favorite songs, with the winners announced at the end of the evening. Prints of student's art, along with TC memorabilia were given to the guests. The students did an outstanding job of creating beautiful art, entertaining and hosting the evening. Traverse City teachers and administrative staff do an excellent job of providing a nurturing structure and environment that best suits their student’s educational success.
At the Dem’s Winter Rally on Feb. 17, a table was set up to showcase some of the students artwork and to collect any donations of money and/or food for the pantry. An example is shown here.
