Nowhere,

does it mention in the article,

boasting the “bay gala”

where the revelers who so-enjoyed the evening,

nowhere does it mention,

the invitation of the very people who made their,

by-invitation-only,

celebratory ev ent possible…

We, ordinary,

not invited folks…

the forgotten, lost lot of us paying the bills….

your friendly taxpaying public.

WE…

NOT THE BESSE

‘TAX-AVOIDANCE’

'DONATION'

WE - CHANGED THE FACE OF

Bay de Noc Community College

The boasting of the writer forgot the facts!

Seemingly,

we were over-looked in the invite processes..

by the faculty...

by the staff...

by the administration...

and not the least...

by the board of trusteeeees!

Yes, indeed…

It was the

“people”.

"The Golden Gala held in the Besse Center,

in celebration of Bay College's 50th anniversary,

was a 'sparkling night to remember'.

We would like to send a big thank you to all of our

'volunteers',

'sponsors',

'donors and

all who attended the event'.

The atmosphere was

"stunning",

"vittles scrumptious",

"music entertaining",

"artwork amazing" and

the "student performance outstanding".

The Center was a gift from the John and Melissa Besse Foundation,

a gift which changed the face of Bay College.”

Also 'forgotten' surely, by act of ommission was patttttt.

Many people who worked at bay for years,

seem to have been overlooked in the invitation process as well...

Frogleggs - the people attending the event paid for tickets to attend the event that more than covered the cost - and the tickets were for sale to anyone who wanted to purchase them - so it was open to the public and anyone who wanted to celebrate Bay College's presence in our community for the past 50 years and the opportunities it has given thousands of our residents.

Nancy, it is impossible to post a rebuttal to someone who thinks they are an intellectual, yet doesn't know the meaning of a "paragraph".

And if you have read more than one of this person's "comments", they rarely have anything to do with the story being commented on, and NEVER have anything positive to say.

This person is involved in NOTHING community-based, yet has the time and gall to posit that no one else should be involved in the community.

Complaining about everything just makes reading that nonsense a waste of everyone's time. Just like talking to a wall, which is what Froggy(Whizzy) do and even the wall is tired of it.

Sooo,

how much were the tickets?

how was the event advertised, posted and

where 'tickets' could be obtained?

I stand by my assertions,

that the college has failed to place importance of tax collections by the people of delta county since the college's inception in 1964,

but instead attempts to posit donors as being the life-giving blood of the college,

when in fact it is the largest body of 'workers' and tax payers that have contributed far more than a few tax avoidance donors!

Wake up to reality.

Don't forget that taxpayers supported dickinson county unfairly when there wasn't enough enrollment to warrant keeping classes there.
