DUE TO THE HUGE PROBLEMS CAUSED BY THE APPARENT DEMISE OF THE COMPANY THAT RAN OUR FORMER GUESTBOOK, FIVE MESSAGES IN THIS SECTION COULD NOT BE RETRIEVED FROM THEIR PARTIALLY DEFUNCT SERVER.

WE ARE VERY SORRY THEY ARE LOST FOR GOOD.

Just returned from my first visit to South Fox Island. It was a trip I will never forget due to the beauty and serenity of the place. We worked hard, had a great meal prepared over the fire.

To Cathy Allchin,

I am glad to see that you are involved in some great community projects. The Great Lakes and the history around them have always been fond memories to me.

Good job Cathy

My uncle, Zane Bourisseau commented on the wooden thing that looked like a clothesline. We went to the island in 98 or 99. He seemed to remember it when he was a boy. His father, Frank Moses Bourisseau was light keeper, son of Louis. I think he said something about remembering his father using it to mend fishing traps or fishing nets or something?? does that make sense?

Reply: Yes that does make perfect sense. We got the same info from Doug McCormick, who spent parts of his childhood there too. Thank you very much for the hint!

Great website! Very informative!

My husband and I have talked about visiting South Fox for years and when we heard about your organization, we were very excited and hope to join soon.

We have camped for years on North and South Manitou Islands and have watched and donated to the Lighthouse restoration on South Manitou. After learning about South Fox and the lighthouse preservation efforts there, we are excited by the work being accomplished and hope to join you all someday soon. Keep up the great work!
