The Reciprocal Visit

Only two and a half years after the Arranmore Islanders descended on Beaver for a twinning ceremony, friends of Beaver Island will travel en masse to this west-Ireland island early next March. Many times during the interim one person or another has said, "Let's go," but it took the organizational talent of Cindy Gillespie-Cushman and Paul Cole to actually set a date. At present 40 people have committed, from Bay City, Charlevoix, Chicago, and Beaver itself. The main body will depart O'Hare on March 5th (and return on the 12th), with others leaving earlier and taking their time to travel from Dublin. There's plenty of room for more on the wind-swept, craggy turf, and our sister island has issued an open invitation: "Come one, come all!”
