The event was a huge success! Dale spoke for a few minutes during intermission and was very well received by supporters of opposition to the mine. We were invited to place our merchandise table at the entrance and had great visibility. The crowd was large at this event—probably 400-500 people—and we are grateful that they were very generous in their donations to the Coalition.

Gather at Stephenson Island, Marinette, WI
Let’s create awareness of the threat to our beautiful Menominee River!
Marinette Marine is launching their 21st ship, the Indianapolis, this Saturday at 11:00 a.m. A launch always draws people from all parts of the world, many of whom know nothing of the threat to our river and way of life.
Bring your signs and wear your Coalition/Save the River t-shirts to show opposition to the proposed metallic sulfide mine. We will be lining the bridge during the boat launch.
Together we continue to raise awareness and support!
See you there!
Overflow parking is available at Stephenson Public Library.
Following the March, there will be a caravan to the Guided Tour of the Prehistoric Menominee Village Complex. This is an opportunity to see and learn about the Menominee Tribe’s sacred sites. We encourage EVERYONE to attend.
