LAPEER COUNTY — In today’s edition of the Lapeer Area View, readers will find the firstever Year in Review edition. The large number and wide variety of great community stories, events and people covered over the past year have led us to do this review in two editions.
In this week’s Lapeer Area View, we will review some of the stories covered in the Inside Our Schools and People sections over the past 12 months. Certainly not all of the stories could be covered in this edition, but we believe we are offering a good variety of what the past year had to offer.
Next week, we will return with a Year in Review paper covering the Weekend and Art & Lifestyles sections.
We hope everyone enjoys reading this special editions of the Lapeer Area View and continues reading throughout the coming new year. Happy Holidays to everyone!

Ace of Hearts jackpot keeps growing
LAPEER — The Lapeer Elks’ popular Ace of Hearts game is being held every week at Louie’s Sports Tavern in Lapeer. The game gives local residents a chance to win a growing jackpot while simultaneously helping the local community.
The Ace of Hearts is held every Monday night at Louie’s, located on Davison Road with the Polar Palace. At 8:30 p.m. every Monday the Elks draw one ticket out of a bowl and that ticket holder has the chance to pick from one playing card in a deck of cards. Whoever finds the Ace of Hearts card immediately wins the jackpot, which grows each week along with ticket sales.
On Monday, the Ace of Hearts was not found and the game continues. The jackpot this upcoming Monday will be nearing $40,000.
Tickets cost $1 each and are available at Louie’s and the Lapeer Elks Lodge on East Nepessing St. in downtown Lapeer. Ticket sales end each week at 8 p.m. at Louie’s. Cash prizes are also available for finding other special cards. For more information about the Lapeer Elks’ Ace of Hearts game, call the Elks Lodge at 810- 664-3216 or Louie’s Sports Tavern at 810-667-1500.
