The newly formed Algonac High School Choir had a very successful beginning this year. Despite the year’s first snow storm, a large and apprecia- tive audience turned out for the Christ- mas concert to hear the choir display its talent. Added effect was given by the use of special lighting including candles. Fund raising projects enabled the choir to purchase risers by January. They provided a movable stage when the choir presented their elementary, junior high, and high school assem- blies later in the year. Drums and guitars were added to the piano accompaniment for many of the popular songs sung by the choir at their assemblies and spring concert. 48 Candy Seiferlein, Sue Lauer, Sandy Stular, Betsy Vernier, Kristi Harper, Jackie Felenchak, Lynda Moreland, Kathy Harper.

Despite the few near drownings and locker suffications, they survived, and also learned how to take care of next year’s freshmen. All during the week they had to wear large bow ties to show that they were freshmen. If they didn’t, the wrath of the upper class members came down upon them. Goofy Gary! Sweet as sugar. The " Bang- Bang” Babies. 51 The fire was lit. During the week the Seniors dressec up according to different decades for their theme, " You’ve Come A Long Way Baby.” The Junior’s theme was " Fantasy Land,” and their hall was dec- orated with many storybook characters On Thursday they came dressed as their characters. The Sophomore’s theme was " The Five Days of Spirit Week.” The Freshmen’s theme was of a graveyard. When you got it, flaunt it! Where are your mittens? 53 On Wednesday, the Varsity Club held its slave sale. They collected a total of $187 and Mark Bowerson brought in the highest amount of $12. Thursday night was the rally and bonfire. Rob Harrington was crowned King of the Rally, and the parade was a beautiful show. After, the bon- fire was lit and everyone gathered around with cider and doughnuts. And finally came Homecoming night. Karl Osterland accepted the Spirit Jug in behalf of the Senior Class. Cyndi Day was crowned Queen of the Homecoming, while her escort, Pat Smith, kept her standing. And the Homecoming Queen is .

Stu- dent Council has been busy with such events as planning a very successful Homecoming dinner-dance, attending St. Clair Area League meetings, and sponsoring an assembly featuring the musical group, " Life.” One of the highlights of the year was an activities day in which the handicapped children from the inter- mediate school district participated. It was fun for all. Gail Jacobs (Treasurer), Gayle Wise (President) Ron Appclman (Vice-President) Becky Centala (Secretary) 56 ■nrc- p r r t r r p Stage Band Rob Harrington (S. of A.)

This year the Varsity Club opened its doors to letter-winners on the girls basketball team. Being the most active of all the groups in A.H.S., the club bought an expensive weight machine last spring. The mac hine has been a tremendous asset to our athletes. The club is also known for its enjoy- ment. The Christmas Party and the Millionaire’s Party were just two of the more memorable occasions that this year’s members participated in. Plans are being made for money-making pro- jects in the future. 58 The Speech and Drama Club, under the supervision of Mr. Ronald Trum- ble, have performed for over 5000 per- sons per year. They’ve performed at the Pickeral Tournament stage show, at assembly programs for the Algonac, Fair Haven, Pte. Tremble, and Harsens Island Elementary Schools, High School assemblies, Senior Citizens Ban- quets, and evening shows for parents and children. Among their many per- formances, they’ve done speeches, pan- tomimes, monologues, speech activity demonstrations, skits, and plays. 61 FRONT ROW : Ellen Leacock, Helen Lessenthien, Karl Osterland, Gary Treppa, Mr. Dennis Kelly.

Last summer two students were sent to Northwood Institute for a journalism class, and this summer they’ll be attending Ohio State University. In Child Development class, stu- dents learn about the physical, mental, social, and emotional development of younger children. By planning a Chil- dren’s Day at Pointe Tremble Elemen- tary, the high school students are given a chance to apply this knowledge. And this is a doggie . . . Kk LI MmNnO Qq Rr And now, kiddies .

The Girls Athletic Association had three teams for field hockey this year by adding freshmen to the club. There was also a good turnout for volleyball, with more matches played than any other year. The G.A.A. Pajama Party is always something great to look forward to — especially the talent show and Mrs. Stringer’s feast! The Annual Swim and Activities Day at Marysville is attended by all schools in the league. It’s a nice opportunity to get to know the girls from the other schools. The Latin Club enjoys studying about the marvels of ancient Rome, " the flaming pageant of the rise of Rome from a crossroads born to world mastery” . . . (Durant) . . . This is the content of the studies of the Latin classes. A group of ten were privileged in April to see this ancient city for them- selves. 64 Come on, I dare you! The bench? Again?

The Football Team finished their season with a 3-6 record. The Muskrats played inconsistently throughout the season although playing well at times. The team finished strong, outscoring their opponents in the last 4 games 65- 17. John Geer and John Moran (co- captains), led the defense while Lee Sysmanski gained over 200 yards in each of the last two games. John Geer also was named to SCAL all-league team as a linebacker.

Varsity Basketball Tom Lozcn Bill Pitzcr and Rick Gougen — Managers This year’s basketball team made a vast improvement from the previous year tripling their win total. Led by Seniors Will Coughlin, Tom Lozen, and John Sauber the Muskrats fright- ened many teams with their height and sometimes deadly shooting. Although inconsistent throughout the year, the Muskrats played a major roll in the standing of the S.C.A.L.

MIDDLE ROW: Regina Green, Diane Lan gell, Beth Welch. BOTTOM ROW: Cindy Ragland, Patti Borowiec. The J.V. football and basketball teams had contrasting seasons this year. The J.V. football composed mostly of freshmen had a rugged time. But their record could have been completely dif- ferent if they hadn’t made a few key mistakes. The basketball team did well this year with a well balanced offensive and defensive attack. They were probably the best team in the J.V. league.

Geer set records for most career pins — 28 and most pins in a season — 22, while being S.C.A.L. champ. Arpan also was the league heavy weight champion while collecting 24 wins.

The Varsity and J.V. teams began practice during the summer months, making it pay off later in the season. The J.V. ended 7-7, and the Varsity with an 11-3 record, and win- ning the District Championship in the state tournaments. Although the teams are still young, they prove to be the ones to beat in the years to come. Tammy Yax Lori Crampton rT Gina Roekwood Sue Bchm Liz Gerber Good Going, Kerri!

He was a former village councilman and village president, Cay Township police officer, president of the Lions’ Club, and parade marshal for the Pickeral Tournament. He has been working for the school since 1962, and was a good friend of many of the students. He was always at the top of things, and we know he has made his way to the top once again. Yearbook Sue Hiller and Karen Fecteau, Senior Editors The 1973-74 Yearbook Staff, along with our advisor, Mr. Weitzel, started the new school year with vigor and vitality. We worked hard every day doing layouts, developing, printing, typing, and editing. As each deadline approached, we could always count on Vicki Page for some added excitement (in one way or another). We would like to thank Liz Gerber, Frank Balduck, and Roger Peterson for taking pictures and working in the darkroom.
