Fund-raiser earns club $400
A few students who will compete at the State Speech and Drama Championships and State Speech and Drama Festival this weekend had an opportunity to polish their acts Monday by performing at Forensics and Drama Night at the Lansing Intermediate School auditorium.
Forensics and Drama Night is an annual event to raise funds for the forensics award banquet, said co-organizers and Lansing High School seniors Sarah Glynn and Kaitlan Riccio.
The event showcased performances by five students who will compete at the state championships this weekend and the one-act play that will be performed at the state festival on Friday.
During the show's intermission, guests were invited to partake in an all-you-can-eat dessert banquet, which was provided by forensics students.
The event raised about $400, forensics coach Ken Church said. He said the money would be used to buy trophies for the awards banquet, which will take place at 6:30 p.m. Monday in the Lansing High School commons.
