The Beaver Island Historical Society is organizing a Beaver Island oral history project based on Island events during the 1950s, 60’s and ’70s. 

The public is invited to attend group sessions moderated by Ed Wojan at the St. James Township Hall.  The meetings will be held twice a month on the first and third Mondays in January, February, and March.  The February/March dates and location will be confirmed at the January meetings.  The questions for February and March will be updated prior to the beginning of each month.  The format will be similar to January.

The events will be live streamed by Joe Moore and recorded for future society publications. Please consider attending and sharing your stories or tuning in to reminisce on great memories!  Naturally, the meetings are family friendly.  Beverages will be provided. Feel free to bring a dessert.
