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.

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 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.
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.

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

To Lucas, Sophia and all our listeners, we are strengthened by our challenges and weakened by our worry. Let worry go.

On a lighter note, where do baby cows go to eat lunch? The calf-eteria!!!
