Possible Partnership: PABI and the C of C

PABI President Judy Lanier appeared at a Chamber of Commerce meeting and proposed a partnership regarding the Community House's Welcome Center. On Beaver Island the Chamber plays a role similar to what it does in most communities, dispensing information to thousands of interested people who call, send an e-mail, or simply drop in when they arrive.

This promising course of action will be thoroughly discussed. Hopefully the Chamber will operate the Community House's Welcome Center.

Beaver Island publicity continues to snowball. Executive Director Steve West appeared once again on a talk radio show, as did Bill Cashman. Conde Nast Traveler discovered Beaver Island and gave its loyal readers a choice between going to Monaco in the south of France or coming here. Thanks to Jeff Cashman's graphics, both Great Lakes Boating and Lakeland Boating previewed the Island in extended feature articles in their recent issues.
