    GRASS LAKE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION ANNOUNCEMENTS


    1929 Grass Lake Yearbook Offered for Viewing
    Click here to find a PDF slideshow of the 1929 Grass Lake Schools yearbook. The yearbook was graciously loaned to us by Bill White and belonged to Bill's mother's sister, Clara Hewlett. It is definitely a treasure. Thank you to Bill and the White family for the loan. (Note that it is quite a large file, but after having opened it, you can scroll through it by hitting the down arrow on your keyboard.)

    Female Leaders Make Their Mark in GL Government
    Grass Lake has a history of strong female leadership as early as 1947, as reported in the Jackson Citizen Patriot and the Grass Lake News. Despite no hot-button issues, voters propelled the Young Women’s Party of Grass Lake into power in Grass Lake Village in 1947-48. And it made national news.
