PABI Garage Sale 8/5 10-4 8/6 noon-4
Because it’s from the Preservation Association of Beaver Island (operator of the Beaver Island Community Center and WVBI), this isn’t your average garage sale. Indeed, it is a community garage sale of epic proportions. Last year’s selection included antiques, boats of all kinds, flat screen TVs, stereo equipment, grills, weed whackers, golf equipment, electrical fixtures and all sorts of collectibles. Best of all, the proceeds go to support PABI’s operations throughout the year. Have something to donate for the cause? Drop off your high-quality items August 2nd, 3rd or 4th at the Welke Hangar from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00pm.
The Welke Hangar is located at the Welke Airport, accessible by the first drive off East Side Drive after the ‘Low Flying Aircraft’ sign. Parking is available at this and the second hangar on the right, as well as on East Side Dr. For further info contact the BIC Center at 231-448-2022.
Your un-broken, saleable items are welcomed in support of the Preservation Association of Beaver Island, owning and operating your Beaver Island Commuunity Center and WVBI 100.1FM

DID YOU KNOW THAT one of baseballs worst promotions was a 10-cent beer night on June 6, 1974?
WORD OF THE DAY: paladin (PAL-uh-din) which means
1) any determined advocate or defender of a noble cause.
2) any one of the 12 legendary peers or knightly champions in attendance on Charlemagne.
Paladin nowadays usually means “defender or advocate of a noble cause,” but it still retains its original meaning “any of the twelve peers of Charlemagne’s court or of his vassals.”

… Still no delays to report on Beaver Island.

Hey, let’s be careful out there. Especially in the school zone.

To Lucas and all our listeners, “There are risks and costs to action. But they are far less than the long-range risks of comfortable inaction.”
