interviews will proceed with representatives on both sides of the township consolidation issue. We’ll let you know as soon as we can when they will be broadcast. If you miss them on the air you’ll still be able to hear them as podcasts.
If you have questions you’d like presented to representatives from either or both sides of the Township consolidation vote, please send them to consolidation questions at w-v-b-I dot net. Or you can drop them in the mail addressed to Consolidation Questions, PABI [PABBY], P-O Box 494, Beaver Island, Michigan 4-9-7-8-2. Or just drop them by the BIC Center during regular opening hours in an envelope marked Consolidation Questions.
At our website, we’ve tried to include everything, but if we’ve missed your event you can easily add it yourself by using the handy “Post Your Event” button in the upper right of the calendar or by sending an email with the details to firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com>. And, we can make it easy for your events to show up in a nice calendar on your website, too, so you only have to post them once. Your website can show only your events or those plus other categories from the calendar that you choose.
To help coordinate the events we’ve taken the major events for Summer 2018 and compiled them into a nifty little Celebrate Summer 2018 online calendar. Just point your browser at summer.wvbi.net to get the lowdown on everything planned so far for next summer. Then check back from time to time as more events will be added as dates are firmed up.
Remember that the Pantry can always donations. For your convenience, there are collection baskets at the Beaver Island Christian Church, Beaver Island Community Center, Beaver Island Rural Health Center, Fresh Air, Holy Cross Church and Island Airways.
