Community Connections: Local Non-Profits Together Brown Bag Lunch

The Cook County Community Fund and Cook County Higher Education are collaborating to offer three brown bag lunches in April!

The first in the series is….

Community Connections: Local Non-Profits Together

Thursday, April 17th, 2014


What are the issues you see in our county? What would help your organization be more effective? Is your group stalled out or feeling disconnected?

Let’s come together over lunch to discover the resources in our own backyard. We may be seeing the same issues…have a skill we can share that can make a difference for your non-profit’s success. Projects in collaboration do better in the world of grants.

This is an opportunity to create new connections to better help your volunteer organization accomplish its mission. We all aim to make Cook County a good home for everyone..let’s do it together.

Look for more information in the next few weeks about the other brown bag lunches in this series.

Please RSVP at 218-387-3411or at 300 west 3rd street Grand Marais, MN 55604

CCHS Theater Sports on Friday

Whose Sport Is It, Anyway?

What sports season comes between basketball and baseball? Theater sports! This Friday,

March 21, seniors will compete on stage at 7 p.m. in the Arrowhead Center for the

Arts. You’ll want to get a seat early for this ever-popular event, now in its ninth season.

Tickets are $5 for students and $8 for adults.

The competition can get a little crazy, but for a great cause: the College Literature class’s

annual spring theater trip to the Twin Cities. This year we’ll see both Rain and Othello.

Coached by Michael McHugh, Theater Sports is improvisational theater with a

competitive sports angle. In a typical match, two teams challenge each other, react to a

surprise command, and count on the audience to judge them. In addition to suggesting

wacky scenes for the teams to enact, a few brave audience members may wish to take the

stage and compete also!

 Theater Sports teams include Thomas Anderson, Jessica Berg-Collman, Joe Borud,

Anna Carman, Joey Chmelik, Sarah Deschampe, Cy Fortunato, Jonny Jacobsen, Charlie

Lawler, Megan Lehto, Shannon O’Phelan, Breana Peterson, Melanie Stoddard, Abby

Sutton, and Seth Warren.
