… 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, the mind holds our knowledge and the soul keeps our beliefs.

Big Hands!!!

That’s the WVBI Community Calendar for Monday July 10th, 2017.

I’m Greg Doig at WVBI‚ the Voice of Beaver Island. Have a great day, and thank you for listening!
