Big Top Chautauqua tent raising 2015
After the sun washed away the Lake Superior fog from the slopes of Mt Ashwabay, the day cleared to perfection for hoisting the Big Top Chautauqua tent. A hardworking team of Crew and Volunteers enjoyed a day of smiles and camaraderie, and got the tent in the air by mid-afternoon. There's still a lot of work before New First Night, but we're on our way to another great season!
The Ashwabay Outdoor Educational Foundation is thrilled to announce we've been selected to receive a grant from the Chequamegon Bay Area Community Fund. The funds will used to support our popular $10 Friday Youth Nights, and also to expand our Junior Ski Patrol program.
