“I would like to take this time to invite you all to save the date for a two day Invasive Species workshop on Beaver Island. The workshop is being held by the CAKE CISMA in partnership with The Nature Conservancy. It will be June 28th and June 29th. The intent of the workshop is to increase the capacity of Beaver Island residents to carry out invasive species ID and management along with educating other stake holders in preventing the spread of invasives to the archipelago. We will have presenters from MNFI, DNR, MDARD, CAKE, TNC, Little Traverse Conservancy and others”.

On this date of June 14, 1777 – The Continental Congress in Philadelphia adopted the “Stars and Stripes” as the national flag of the United States. The Flag Resolution stated “Resolved: that the flag of the United States be made of thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new Constellation.” On May 20, 1916, President Woodrow Wilson officially proclaimed June 14 “Flag Day” as a commemoration of the “Stars and Stripes.”
Did you know that camels are born without humps?
Word of the day: vexillology (vek-suh-LOL-uh-jee) which means the study of flags. Vexillology comes from the Latin word for “flag,” vexillum. It entered English in the mid-1900s.

Still no delays to report.
Hey, Let’s be careful out there. Especially in the school zone.

To Lucas and all our listeners, when we think only about ourselves, we draw a blind that shuts out others who could brighten our being. So, go ahead, leave the blinds open.

That’s the WVBI Community Calendar for Tuesday June 14th, 2016. I’m Greg Doig at WVBI ‚the Voice of Beaver Island.
