Worship Services on Island
Christmas Concert 2 p.m.
The Beaver Island Christmas Concert is yet another example of what makes our community so strong. Each Christmas community members join together to present a musical celebration of the season that reminds us all of what Christmas is really about.

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<>. 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.

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.
We can accept unopened, unexpired non-perishable food items. Cash donations are tax-deductible and are always appreciated as well. Checks can be made payable to the Beaver Island Christian Church, PO Box 21, Beaver Island, 49782. Please write Food Pantry on the memo line. Or you can use the Donation button at the bottom of the home page at, Joe Moore’s News on the Net.

Donegal Bay Road work continues, watch for detours and workers… 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, taking care of yourself is the best fashion statement you can make. If you feel good inside it shows.

On a lighter note, why wouldn’t the football player go into his own end zone after dark? He feared for his safety!!!
