Celebrate Lake Superior Day
Sunday, July 20, 2008
better than a July picnic on a
sandy beach next to the
world?s largest freshwater lake?
and a Lake Superior celebration!
Individuals and families, churches and kids, communities and clubs, and
businesses and industries hold activities or
events that celebrate Lake Superior
held annually on the third Sunday
in July (July 20 this year). Can you do something that symbolizes your
own connection to the lake on that day?
Lake Superior Day was started in the early 1990s to highlight the
importance of this great water body to the basin?s environment
and economy. The Lake Superior Binational Forum promotes this basin-wide
event to highlight the special connections people have to this unique
world treasure. Many events have been held to educate or entertain people
about lake issues, special places, and recreational opportunities.
You are invited to hold
activities or events that celebrate this world-class lake. This year the
?Let?s Go Fly
a Kite!? to symbolize clean
energy sources such as wind power. Organize your group or family to fly a
kite at your favorite beach or park on July 20! Click
for more information about flying a kite on Lake Superior day!
Last year almost 45 groups
and communities participated in some way, including special events such
as dragon boat races, beach clean ups, musical concerts, library
displays, church services, and signed proclamations that designate the
third Sunday in July as Lake Superior Day.
