Thanks to Kevin Musser for all of his hard work in maintaining CopperRange.org, where we find this week's Shoebox Memory. The sign photo is from a collection by Neil Fleming which you will want to check out.

The 97th Annual Reunion will be held at the Central Mine Church on Sunday, July 27, with services at 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. The Reverend Dr. Daniel Rosemergy of Nashville, TN will be the minister-in-charge for the 13th consecutive year. Music is provided by an excellent choir. Your attendance will make you a part of a historic tradition and an inspirational service as it was from 1869-1903. EVERYONE IS WELCOME! Central Mine is located along U.S.41 in Keweenaw County, 18 miles north of Calumet. For further information call Dave at (906) 289-4579 or Charles at (906) 337-4251.

This may sound strange, but it's stuff like this that adds to the unique charactor of the Keweenaw. Stuff like this just makes the U.P. a world of its own. This give me goose bumps and anyone reading this NOT from the U.P. must think I'm nuts... But you people from the U.P. know EXACTLY what I'm saying, don't you!

Hey, Charlie--next Sunday isn't July 27th, it's the 20th. So is the reunion on the 20th or 27th? Just didn't want people to get confused.

Thanks for noticing the original glitch. The reunion is on July 27, according to Charlie Stetter.

Hey Alex Tiensivu, Georgia:
Actually, no. While as a Not-Yooper, I get no goose-bumps, and I don't think therefor I'll understand what exactly, in full detail, you are talking about, but to me you appear absolutely sane. And while I'm wondering if that's making the UP so globally unique (other places have their own traditions, making them special), from hitting the PastyCam regularly I very well get the impression that things like these indeed make that corner of the world special the way it seems to be (via the internet).
Hope you Enjoy your great moments.

Hei, Alex, I get similar feelings when getting close to the Big Mac Bridge on the way back home! But, we're NOT insane, are we? We just love it UP here.

I ask that the visitors to Central for the annual reunion respect the privacy of the dwelling occupants. Thank you!

By Dick, Fl. on Sunday, July 13, 2003 - 09:29 pm:

Yes Alex, I know exactly what you are saying. I have been gone for over 30 years and I miss the UP like I left just yesterday.
