Nor'wester (Springdale) - - FRONT PAGE - BY CORY HUR­LEY

The Long Is­land Her­itage So­ci­ety is invit­ing peo­ple — par­tic­u­larly those in the Green Bay area — to visit the is­land this week­end.

To help cel­e­brate the Labour Day week­end, the com­mu­nity has come to­gether to plan sev­eral events and ac­tiv­i­ties through Satur­day and Sun­day.

Take the short ferry ride to the is­land and en­joy such things as a bar­be­cue, yard sale fundraiser, visit the Her­itage Mu­seum and the Her­itage Church, and take a walk on the com­mu­nity walk­ing trail.

Ac­cord­ing to the on­line ferry sched­ule, the ferry from Pil­ley’s Is­land to Long Is­land de­parts six times Satur­day be­tween 7:45 a.m. and 8:15 p.m. The re­turn voy­age is also sched­uled six times daily. On Sun­day, the six cross­ings from Pil­ley’s Is­land run be­tween 10:30 a.m. and 8:50 p.m., while there are seven re­turn trips.

Vis­i­tors from away can stay overnight at one of the three tourist homes on the is­land.

For more in­for­ma­tion call Mar­i­lyn at 264-3153 or 699-1607 or Rox­anne at the Tea Room at 264-3104 or 264-3301.
