The Friends of Plum and Pilot Island will be holding their winter board meeting on Washington Island in late January. Pairing with that meeting is an open house event for residents of Washington Island to develop a connection to neighboring Plum Island beyond the view they get from the ferry when traversing to the mainland. Marketing Director Patti Zarling notes that there will be several exhibits and presentations on the Friends’ educational programs.
The keynote address is by Maritime Archaeologist Tori Kiefer. Zarling says winter is a better time to reach out to Washington Island residents compared to the busy summer tourist season. The event runs from 1:00 to 5:00 PM on January 25th.
