Citizens Supporting the Arts

Mission Statement

The mission and sole purpose of the Citizens Supporting the Arts (CSA) is to bring awareness to the Negaunee Community for the need to replace the outdated and cumbersome sound shell used by performers at the Lakeview Elementary School in Negaunee. The CSA has begun fund raising efforts to purchase a new music shell and asks the community to come together in this endeavor. The proposed new “Legacy” Performance Shell, manufactured by the Wenger Corporation will enhance the performance venue for all of the fine arts activities in the Negaunee School District. 

Organization Information

The Citizens Supporting the Arts organizing membership consists of one retired instrumental music teacher, one elementary music teacher, one school custodial staff member, and one local citizen with ties to the district. All members have a deep concern for the safety and well being of the schools and its children and the community of Negaunee at large.

Update 

You may have noticed during the holidays that the old music shell was once again called upon to perform at Lakeview School. We had hoped to be able to allow it to retire this fall. Our goal of $10,000 has not yet been reached. We are approximately $3,000.00 closer and still just as determined to replace it with a better, safer and more acoustically enhancing structure. Please help us to reach this goal by the spring programs of 2013.  All donations will be greatly appreciated and can be mailed to Lakeview School, 100 Croix Street, Negaunee, att: Lakeview Parent Teacher Partnership (LPTP).
