A few notes about what’s not listed:
- Summer Solstice Pageant with the Good Harbor Hill Players: The planning and prep for this event requires a lot of close contact between dozens of people, not to mention a very large gathering for the performance. We are in dialogue with GHHP and the local public health officials. If the event becomes possible, we will be thrilled to welcome the puppets, performers and music to campus.
- Wooden Boat Parade: We are hopeful that with careful planning and good weather, we’ll be able to make this happen. Details forthcoming.
- Featured Speaker: Please join us online to hear for this year’s speaker series.
- Contra Dance: Won’t it be great when this is possible? Fingers crossed for 2022!
- Lake Superior Chowder Experience: We sincerely hope this will return in 2022!
- Harborside Picnic: You can almost smell the brats…they’ll be there in 2022!
