Fife Lake Historical Society selects honoree

FIFE LAKE – Jacob Chase was the recipient of the Fife Lake Area Historical Society and Fife Lake Village 2016 Community Service Scholarship. To receive this award, Jacob met all the scholastic and volunteer requirements over the last two years.

Chase said the ‘The Historical Society has given me an amazing opportunity to learn about my town and the people who live there. I will take my experiences with me for the rest of my life and always look back and remember what an amazing experience this has been for me.’

Chase will graduate from Forest Area High School this spring and then finish his classes at Northern Michigan College before moving on to a larger university to complete his degree in accounting.

He is a member of the National Honor Society, plays baseball, basketball, and plays percussion in the band.

The Fife Lake Area Historical Society Community Service Program was designed to give qualified students the opportunity to volunteer at the three historic venues; museum, school house, and fire barn, during the summers after their sophomore and junior years. This program supports the community volunteers and provides an opportunity for students to learn more about the history of their area as well as earn a scholarship for further education after high school.

The society is celebrating its 50th year and is open from 1-4 p.m. on Friday and Saturday Memorial Day through Labor Day.
