Kee students assist with beautification project ...

The Kee High band and vocal department brought nearly 40 Kee High students out to “The Hill” last Tuesday for a Civic Responsibility Day. They were there to help the Lansing Visioning Group pretty up the parcel at the end of Blackhawk Bridge. Kee High Band Director Justin Schwake said the students, who were revved up for the last day of school, all volunteered to help the cause by pulling weeds, digging, planting and spraying. Despite a couple of run-ins with garden snakes, the event was a great success.  Adults who have “adopted” portions of the Hill were present to direct the students. Sue Papp, Bill Nation, John Verdon, Duane Meier, Bob Conyer and Jackie Everett helped out and all agreed the students did a great job. Photo and report by B.J. Tomlinson.
