Their time to dance: Russells competing in Dancing with the Local Stars

September 26, 2018

Jac and Mary Russell have been dancing together since eighth grade.

Now, after 47 years of marriage and dancing at many weddings and at waterfront concerts in Ludington, they are preparing to dance for an audience at the third annual Dancing with the Local Stars fundraiser at Lincoln Hills Golf Club on Oct. 13.

The fundraising event is for the Ludington Area School District’s Oriole Foundation, which provides teacher mini-grants and funding for student programs and college scholarships.

Eight couples will be performing at the event and will be competing for donations to the Oriole Foundation and for three trophies: Judges’ Choice, Most Entertaining and People’s Choice.
