"The Islanders", play

Posted: 6/30/2017

The play, “The Islanders”, was presented at the TPAC last weekend by Island Players. It was written by Gayle Johnson and was part 3 of a trilogy of plays about early Island history, titled Steadfast Women/Iron Men. Gayle based these plays on factual accounts.  Interesting to note, Gayle’s  mother, Daryl Johnson, and Gayle’s  daughter, Bess Anna,  both played characters. It was so helpful  to have Gayle’s  comments and encouragement prior to performance. The play included adventure, laughter, dancing, sadness, tears, life, death, beginnings, endings, all set in the 1850s to 1900, when settlers began arriving to Washington Island. Historic scenes were displayed and music added to co-ordinate with the scenes. The director was Howard Scott. Tech support team included Emmett Woods, Lee Engstrom and Tom Pratt. Joan Hansen was stage manager, snack supplier, cast supporter and encourager. Co-producers were Amanda DeWitt, Barbara Schall, and Donna Russell. There are also those that do costumes, make-up, and provide props. Archival photos were provided by the Washington Island Archives assembled by Archivist, Steve Reiss, plus some photos supplied by other members of the community. The cast included 40+.   Gayle and some of the actors remained Sunday after the play for a “talk back”. Attenders could ask questions and make comments.

Plum Island Open

Posted: 6/15/2017

 Plum Island is now open to the public as the dock there has been repaired. Plum is one of several islands that are part of the Green Bay National Wildlife Refuge. Plum and Pilot Islands were added in 2007. Members of  FOPPI, Friends of Plum and Pilot Islands, have been instrumental in raising funds and working to complete the restoration  of  the dock.  FOPPI and Women in Restoration groups also  take on other projects such as mowing walking paths, making and placing benches. There will be dock space for both public and commercial use. Public docking is on a “first come first serve” basis and commercial is by permit. For further information, go to FOPPI’s web site.
