Songs and Stories of the Sleeping Bear Dunes Area Featuring the Beach Bards

December 10, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Cherry Republic is hosting a Friends of Sleeping Bear Dunes fundraiser on Sunday, December 10th, 1-4 pm in the Public House in Glen Arbor. The Beach Bards will entertain with a fun afternoon of original (or new takes) on old songs, stories, and poems highlighting the history of the Sleeping Bear Dunes area. Anne-Marie Oomen and Norm Wheeler will perform “A Stone That Rises,” with Anne-Marie starring as Elizabeth Burfiend talking about the settlement of the Port Oneida District and what life was like in the area over 100 years ago. Norm Wheeler will accompany Anne-Marie on trumpet.

The Friends of Sleeping Bear Dunes will sell Picture-Perfect Sleeping Bear at the event with special bundle offerings at extra savings. Picture-Perfect Sleeping Bear captures the history and beauty of Sleeping Bear country through a sparking collection of photographs and stories. Purchases and donations from the event will support the Friends’ goal to acquire a Duet Bike. This wheelchair bicycle tandem will be a new mobility device which will allow families and friends to enjoy a bike ride through the park together.

The event is free and open to the public. All book sales and donations from the event are designated for the Duet Bike project.
