Several LHS Alumni have worked with the Lakeview Area community Fund (LACF) to launch the
LHS Alumni Scholarship Fund. The LHS Alumni Scholarship Fund will be used to support one or more scholarships annually for seniors beginning in 2021. The amount and number of scholarships awarded will be determined by the level of giving from LHS alumni and friends of LHS. Preference will be given to students based on their financial need. Special consideration will go to those students who work, apprentice and/or participate in community service and/or extracurricular activities while attending Lakeview Community Schools.

If you are interested in donating to the LHS Alumni Scholarship Fund you can go online at ​

or send a check to Lakeview Area Community Fund c/o GACF, 101 N. Lafayette, Greenville MI 48838.

All donations are tax deductable.

leaf pick upFall is proof that change IS beautiful!
The colors are changing and the leaves are falling. Which means raking is inevitable. The DPW will be starting the leaf pick-up this week using our leaf vac. Our goal is to pick up the leaves at the beginning of each week. Some weeks will require more. Please understand, weather may change the dates.

Please note:
The Department of Public Works will not be picking up bagged leaves. An area was designated at Lakeview's Griffith Field Airport for leaf disposal by Village residents. Only environmentally friendly paper bags are accepted at the drop site.
