Bad Axe Chamber of Commerce President Nick Checkley & Secretary Kelsey Brown presented a donation check to both Superintendent Mr. Greg Newland & High School Principal Mr. Kurt Dennis. Also included in this photo: HS Office Assistant Leslee Weitenberner & a few of the students who will be enjoying next year’s Washington DC Trip 04/18-04/22 2018. This check, in the amount of $200.00 is a combined donation on behalf of the BA Chamber & Smith’s Distributing! At this year’s Hatchet Festival the CofC tallied the entertainment tent return tab alongside an additional donation from Smith’s Distributing to donate to the school! These funds will be utilized toward next year’s BAHS Washington DC trip! Both the students & staff are extremely grateful for this generous donation!



If you love the comfort of small town living, but also like “big town” convenience, then Bad Axe is just the place for you!

Bad Axe is community of just under 4,000 located right in the heart of Huron County. Outside the city limits the area is surrounded by woods and farmland, and inside is a variety of restaurants, florists, parks, churches, hotels, and an abundance of small, locally owned businesses, with more opening all the time!

Just a short drive away is Lake Huron, which offers many recreational activities for all! Boating, fishing, hunting, golfing, and camping are just a few of the activities to take part in while in Michigan’s Thumb. Visit our Calendar page and Area Links for a full list of activities and events.

If you’re looking for a new place to call home, or just a weekend of fun, you’ll find it in The Thumb!

Nick Checkley, President
