The 26th Annual Chetek-Weyerhaeuser Variety Show returned to live performances for the first time in two years as 14 acts performed on Friday, March 25, on the middle school stage. Attendance was exceptional as audience members were treated to performances by C-W students and staff, ages 8 and up, who auditioned to gain a spot on the stage. Along with on-stage performances, there was a Silent Auction and Kids’ Basket Raffle to help raise funds for student scholarships. MC’s for the Variety Show were Leah Glaser and Olivia Suedel.
