If you’d like a virtual visit to Washington Island and Hotel Washington with Wisconsin Public TV’s Wisconsin Foodie, we understand the episode filmed last summer will be broadcast (at least in our area) on Thursday, April 1 at 7:30 pm. If it is not scheduled on your local public television station, you should be able to view it via YouTube after it has aired.
On April 15 (tentatively) is a second episode from the island, this time featuring the Island Café and Bread Company. Although the Island Café and Bread Company is no longer in business, we’re sure the feature will be as memorable as the meals, pizzas and pastries once offered there.
We usually send an update on Washington Island events, new businesses or business changes in May and plan to do the same this year. Some of these ventures are still in the planning and preparing stages, so we’ll have more to share then.
Referring back to YouTube, you can view varied musical selections and two recent interviews with Dick Purinton focusing on Washington Island Ferry Line history on the recently established Trueblood Performing Arts Center YouTube channel. While the indoor portion of the venue is temporarily closed, they are reaching out to their audiences in this new way.
Only the early spring birds and a few green daffodil shoots starting to emerge behind the Sievers offices indicate the signs of the season. One way to view a bit more color is to order quilting fabric for the shop! These, along with bolts of basic Kona cotton in white, grey, navy and black, which have been requested by students, have just arrived.
Visits and views, even if they have to be virtual, can be vitalizing!
