No Status Quo on South Bass Island

Winter hibernation is a misnomer on South Bass Island.  Put-in-Bay business appears to slumber, with only the Post Office, Pit Stop, General Store, and Hardware Store keeping regular hours.  However, subtle changes appear hither and yon to reveal change and anticipation.  The images below capture a few of the awakening moments:

Great Lakes Trophy Arrives

The Great Lakes Islands Basketball trophy the Lady Panthers won in the competition held in December 2019 has arrived on South Bass Island.  Put-in-Bay School will proudly display it in the trophy case in the hallway leading to the gymnasium.  It will serve as a symbol of the team’s hard work and as a reminder to pursue goals with dedication.  Thanks to Mackinac Island School for mailing the trophy!  Photos by Shuffenecker



Walk the Island Preserves

“Enjoy the warm holiday weather and walk our island preserves!”

Lake Erie ConservationWhat a great reminder from Lisa Brohl, Chair of the Lake Erie Islands Conservancy.

If you have time, visit the Coopers Woods area that the Conservancy is working to purchase this year–hopefully in early 2020!  As part of the requirements for one of their grants, LEIC needs cans, bottles and other garbage removed from the Woods. Send LEIC photos of your work, if you do go out and help with this effort.
