A Solon Salute and thank you to Brynn Bushey and interact for leading the Interact Club in putting on the first annual Variety Show for charity. We are very grateful to MC Liam Mears, Siiri Pombar, and Adam Blair for donating their Friday night to make the show possible. Thank you to the incredibly talented performers for such a fun show. Red Clay gave a professional-caliber jazz band performance and Remi Savard awed us with his piano skills. Helen Cerutti and Amber Pagani sang so beautifully together. Matt Koucky, Erin Sullivan, and Cierra Loomis (Northfield) inspired us with poetry, dancing, and a clarinet piece. The biggest surprise of the night was the amazingly skilled and fun performance of Chase Ruel, Machlan Pettersen, and Ericson Scott's jam band. You won't want to miss their next performance. The MHS community raised nearly $500 for the Flint Child Health and Development Fund. Thank you. And a Solon Salute to Ms. Heather McLane for helping to organize the event
