Reformation speaker here

MARQUETTE — Calvary Lutheran Church is hosting a Reformation Seminar in the Ancestors Room in the Ramada Inn in Marquette beginning at 2 p.m. Saturday.

Most people know that “in 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue” but few know that Martin Luther was born in 1483, and in 1517, 500 years ago, he posted 95 discussion points or theses to be discussed in the church. For many this began the Reformation.

All are welcome.


Trappers workshop is Saturday

SILVER CITY — The Michigan Department of Natural Resources announced the Lake Superior Sportsman’s Club will offer its eighth-annual Trappers Workshop at 10 a.m. Saturday at the club’s facilities in Ontonagon County.

Lunch will be provided. The club is located 1.5 miles east of Silver City at 31433 W. M-64.

This workshop is designed to give participants a basic understanding of how to begin trapping or, for those seasoned trappers, to get updated on new techniques and to rub elbows with other trappers, said Don Harris, workshop instructor and one of the club’s directors.

The club will draw winners for its five-gun fundraiser at 1 p.m. Admission to the workshop, which is open to the public, is free. Experienced and inexperienced trappers are welcome, and children younger than 14 must be accompanied by an adult. Participants will be given some trapping “goodies” as well as an assortment of literature on trapping.

To pre-register for the Trappers Workshop, or for more information on the event, call Harris at 906-885-5245.
