"It's so great to be part of a town where everyone gets into the act and helps."
June 7, 1999
This page of "George's Eagle Harbor Web" is a place for individuals and organizations needing assistance on a community project to tell us how we can give them a helping hand. If you or your group need assistance, let me know (Email to George)and your need will be posted here.
It works because every year some of our friends and neighbors step forward to get the three days of events organized, prepare and serve the food for the big picnic in the park, raise the money needed to make it all happen, orchestrate the big parade, manage the Popeye Run, etc. As you might imagine, it takes a lot of "helpers" to assure that everyone has a good time. Please let the following neighbors know that you want to help out!
General Chairperson. Barb Sickler 289-4471
Fund Raising Chair. Nancy Wakeman 289-4818
Food Chair. Mary Beyers 289-4806
Parade Chair. Anne Boggio 289-4480
Popeye Run Chair. Bill & Judy Smith 289-4844
Hosts generally work in pairs (wonderful volunteer opportunity for couples) for three-and-one-half hours, usually once a week or every other week. There are two "shifts" each day of the week: the first from 10:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., the second from 1:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. The Lighthouse complex opens on June 15th, and closes October 5th.Hosts are needed for all or portions of the season.
(I had the opportunity to serve as a Lighthouse Host the last few summers. It was great fun! I met and had the opportunity to chat with people, including many family groups, from all over the world. Several visitors had stories to tell of their family's involvement in Copper Country history, while others were lighthouse buffs truly appreciative of the work the Society and its volunteers are doing to maintain the Eagle Harbor Light. I learned a lot about our area and the Lighthouse Service. It's very gratifying volunteer service. Don't miss this opportunity.)
This is an excellent way for you to "get into the act and help", learn a lot, and have some fun.
To help, or for more information, contact David or Jeannine Jordan. (See Eagle Mail) Either give them a call OR E-mail George Hite George and I'll pass the word. Assure your choice of weeks, days and times. Call now!
The program, Adopt-A-Barrel, started a few years ago and orchestrated by Good Neighbor Carol Bogart, has been a major part of keeping Eagle Harbor trash free - a plus for visitor and resident alike. It also saves the Township, us, money. It's a great "Help Out" opportunity for people who are here for just a short vacation.
Either phone the Township, (906) 289-4407, or E-mail me George and we'll add your name to the sign-up chart. The chart will be posted at the Township Hall. Better hurry - the "best weeks" go quickly!
Next summer's sign up chart will be posted in May.
