•'THEME FROM MAHOGANY (DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOU'RE GOING TO) ' Words by Gerry Goff in Music by Michael Masser
Do you know where you're going to?
Do you like the things that life is showing you?
Where are you going to, do you know?
Do you get what you’re hoping for?
When you look behind you there's no open door.
What are you hoping for, do you know?
Once we were standing still in time,
Chasing the fantasies that filled our minds.
And you knew how I loved you but my spirit was free,
Laughing at the questions that you once asked of me.
Do you know where you're going to?
Do you like the things that life is showing you?
Where are you going to, do you know?
Now looking back at all we planned.
We let so many dreams just slip through our hands.
Why must we wail so long before we see How sad the answers to those questions can be?
Do you know where you're going to?
Do you like the things that life is showing you?
Where are you going to, do you know?

Now looking back at all we planned,
We let so many dreams just slip through our hands.
Why must we wait so long before we see
How sad the answers to those questions can be?
Do you know where you're going to?
Do you like the things that life is showing you? Where are you going to, do you know?
Time is but the stream I go a-fishing in. I drink at it; but while I drink I see the sandy bottom and detect how shallow it is. Its thin current slides away, but eternity remains.

"The Young and the Restless” was the chosen theme of the 1977 Junior-Senior Banquet and Prom. The group ’’Inertia” provided the music for the night. It was held at the Elk’s Club in Battle Creek on May 14.
Sponsoring Homecoming this year, the juniors chose "Commercials” for the theme of the floats and ’’Homecoming in the Autumn” for the theme of the dance.

Money Raised for Dances
The Sadie Hawkins Dance proved to be the biggest success of the year for the sophomores, featuring "Eastwood Park,” a band from Detroit. To raise money for the dance the
sophomores sponsored a pizza party after a girls’ basketball game, a slave day, and the fish walk at the Fall Festival. In April, the sophomores put on a "Spring Rock" in place of the traditional "Spring Swing." "Lady Grace," a five piece band from Kalamazoo provided the music for the evening.

Club Members Keep Busy
Mrs. Carlene Zollner is the advisor for the Drama Club. Although they didn't put on any plays this year, they were busy throughout the year.
In the Homecoming parade they were represented by Dale Hartley and on Student Council by Dawn Bemis.
In attempts to raise money, they sponsored a booth at the Fall Festival. Later in the year, they sold plants. The money from these projects will be used so that the Drama Club may attend plays during the summer.
Next year the Drama Club hopes to perform one-act plays.

Team Takes District Championship
This year the Tekonsha varsity basketball team took the name of "Giant Killers" by defeating the fourth ranked in the state, Concord Yellow Jackets, in the finals of the district games, at Concord.
Before meeting the Yellow Jackets, the Indians triumphed over both the North Adams Rams and the Reading Rangers. This is the first time in 15 years that Tekonsha has beaten North Adams in varsity basketball, and also this was the first time since 1968 that the Tekonsha Indians won a district title. The Indians didn't stop by winning just districts, they went into the regional game at Sturgis beating the Burr Oak Bobcats. They then played for the regional
title, but lost out to the Covert Bulldogs. This is the farthest Tekonsha has gone in the regionals in 50 years.
The Indians' returning coach after a three year rest, was Larry Stout, who took the Indians to a winning 13-11 season. This is the best record that the Indians have had in a long time.
High point man of the season was Joe Lindquist with 341 points, with his brother Bryan not far behind with 325. Joe was also high rebounder with a total of 237, Terry King was next with 182 rebounds. Tim Carlson had the most assists and steals with 75 and 57 respectively.

It is true, I never assisted the sun materially in its rising;
but, doubt not, it was of the last importance only to be present at it.
The festivities of Homecoming started the Friday before with the announcement of Tim Carlson and Sally Carlson as King and Queen. This was the first time in THS history that twins became THS royalty. Throughout the week there were many winners of the Hex days. These included: Monday - Fat Albert Day (sweatshirt and jeans): Tuesday - Dress up your locker and jersey Day; Wednesday - Charlie Brown Day (T-shirt and jeans): Thursday - painter pants with Tekonsha Indian T-shirts; Friday - the traditional Red and White Day.
On Friday October 22, the cheerleaders held the annual pep rally with the parade through town that directly followed. The theme of the floats was commercials. The winning float was made by the freshmen. Due to the snow covered football field, the powder puff football game between the junior and senior girls was changed to basketball. Many of the girls found "the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat" throughout the game with the senior girls winning. On that very cold Friday night, the Tekonsha Indians met the Pittsford Wildcats with the Wildcats coming out on top 24-8. The dance afterwards, sponsored by the juniors, had the theme "Homecoming in the Autumn." It was at the dance that King Tim and Queen Sally were crowned.

Drama Class Presents ‘Harvey’
As drama grows at THS, so do the play productions. For the first time in THS history, a play was presented with several changes of the set. The well-known comedy play ’’Harvey" by Mary Chase was the goal set for April 23, 1977.
Harvey is a six foot rabbit, only seen by Elwood P. Dowd. El wood's sister, Veta, tries to put him in a sanatorium. Harvey is also a "pooka" and protects Elwood to the fullest. This creates many hilarious events which take place all through the play.
(Below) Mertyl and Veta have a good time at rehearsal. (Bottom) Kelly realizes that there really is a Harvey. (Middle) Mrs. Chauvenet watches as Elwood talks to Harvey. (Far Right) Wilson reads from the dictionary what a ’‘pooka" is.
CAST: (Silting) Katie Tetreault, Darla Casebeer, David Kempton, Harvey? (Second) Denise Kempton, Teresa Endicott, Brenda Kelly, Jim Kelly, Chris Groholske, Robert Keifer. (Third) Director Mrs. Carlene Zollner, Denise Ray, Assistant Director Sue Slone, Dan Sweet.

You have just finished looking through the 1977 yearbook for the first time, but not the last. Thanks goes to many people like our advisor, Mrs. Hammond, who with her know-how, time, patience, and red pen made it possible for you to have this book. Other thanks go to Skylight Studio for the many pictures they took and the rolls of film they gave us during the year, and to Mr. Lee Zimmermen of Taylor Publishing Company for his explaining of details to us. Also thanks to the teachers and administrators for not getting too irritated on picture days, and foremost, to our patrons and advertisers who supported our yearbook.
Our gratitude to Screen Gems-EMI Music Inc. Colgems-EMl Music Inc. for their permission to use the lyrics from:
