‘Own Thing’ Funds Sought In Bucket Drive
“Our Own Thing," a project which sponsors cultural arts training and activities for Ann Arbor community youth, is holding its fifth annual bucket drive today and Saturday to raise scholarship funds for community youth for summer study at the National Music Camp at Interlochen.
Several students, from grade school to college age, are chosen each year to spend an eight-week summer session at the camp.
On March 29, former Mayor Robert J. Harris proclaimed these two days “Our Own Thing Days.” In doing so, he stated that “I...urge all citizens to support the efforts of this organization in its worthy pursuit to send several young people to Interlochen this summer.”
Students chosen this year are Margaret Tracy Harmon, 15, of 1617 Cambridge Rd.; Monica Hargrave, 11, of 2649 Laurentide Dr.; Carolyn Scott, 14, of 1405 Kuehnle St.; Sylvia Harmon, 12, of 1617 Cambridge, and Robert Blake, 17 of 840 Wickfield Ct.
