Lake Superior Day

July 15, 2007

The Lake Superior Binational Forum is promoting Lake Superior Day celebrations. Anyone is invited to hold activities or events that celebrate this world-class lake. Churches, business, and groups around the lake are already organizing special actions for July 15. For example, many elected and tribal officials in Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Ontario are signing proclamations that designate the third Sunday in July as Lake Superior Day. Some cities or groups are holding special events such as dragon boat races, beach clean ups, and special church services. Last year almost 30 groups and communities participated in some way in the first year of basin wide celebrations including churches that offered special sermons, hymns, and prayers for precious water.

The Forum's Web site offers ideas about how groups celebrated last year and what you can do to celebrate the day at www.superiorforum.info. Click on "Current Projects." New information is posted regularly. For more information email lakesuperiorday@northland.edu; call (715) 682-1489.
