Tomorrow afternoon, January 28, at 1:00pm, the Calumet Visitor Center (part of the Keweenaw National Historical Park), located in the Historic Union Building on 5th Street in Calumet, will serve as the meeting place for those interested in being a part of next years centennial of the 1913 Michigan Copper Miners’ Strike. Those in attendance will be able to learn about centennial plans to date as well as brainstorm the possible addition of new activities. It sounds like there are some great ideas in place, such as the creation of various exhibits, the publication of web content, events for local K-12 students,and possibly the publication of some books relating to the strike.
The meeting is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. I’m sure the organizers would appreciate your ideas and input. I wish I lived closer so I could be involved! If you would like to monitor the development of centennial activities or if you would like more information, please check out the 1913 Strike Website or contact the Michigan Tech Archives at 906-487-2505 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
