Upcoming Events
Public input on a water trail planning effort for Beaver Island will be gathered at an open house on Monday, June 19, at 7 p.m. at the Beaver Island Community Center.
The June 19 open house will include an introduction to the water-trail planning process and information on universal accessibility for paddlers of all ages and abilities. Attendees will be asked to help identify potential access sites and identify community assets that could be featured as part of the water trail system.

The project is being led by the Land Information Access Association (LIAA), a nonprofit community development organization based in Traverse City. LIAA has extensive experience helping communities leverage their recreational assets for economic development, and recently published a state guidebook on water trails, the Michigan Water Trails Manual, available to download for free at For more about LIAA visit

… 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, knowledge and faith quite often collide. It’s yours to decide if they will coincide well in your life. They can.

On a lighter note, I once told a friend of mine that she drew her eyebrows too high. She seemed surprised!!!

That’s the WVBI Community Calendar for Monday June 12th, 2017.
I’m Greg Doig at WVBI‚ the Voice of Beaver Island. Have a great day, and thank you for listening!
