And here are a few other things you might want to know about…
If you are a boater interested in a seasonal slip at the municipal marina, it looks like there will be one available this year. If you are interested, the deadline to sign up for it is April 12. If there is more than one applicant, a selection will be made by lottery. And, Beaver Island Marina has announced they are taking reservations for seasonal slips at their marina starting April 1.
If you are looking for a job this summer, St. James Township is looking for two dock attendants for the municipal marina. They’ve started to review applications, though, so best to get your application in soon if you are interested. Lots of other summer job opportunities out there: McDonough’s Market, Paradise Bay Coffee, Dalwhinnie’s, the Shamrock, Daddy Franks, Island Airways and Stoney all say they are looking for seasonal help.
