Public Service Announcements
Today, we saw the large black bear that has been raiding our trash dumpster and leaving dung piles for the past week or so at Hillhaven about 2 miles east of Grand Marais. Others are telling me they've also seen a bear in the past 2 days within a few miles of here.
We couldn't tell if it was afraid of humans or not.

The Senior Center’s 1st Annual Community Back-to-School Supply Drive starts
You can help a child have a successful year!!
Each year the cost of supplies creeps up as the list of learning necessities
for each student grows even longer. This can be a real hardship for alot of
families and more often then not, the child goes without or the cost of
supplies fall upon our teachers. WE CAN DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS!!! Let’s join
together as a community to ensure that each student starts the school year
with the supplies they need!
For the whole month of August we will be taking donations of school supplies
at the Senior Center. Our office hours are Monday-Friday 8-4. Special
arrangements can be made for pick up if necessary.
A detailed list of supplies for each grade can be found at cookcountyschools.org.
We want to have children prepared to be successful students, and to be
successful they need to have the right tools!
Thank you so much in advance for your support!
