If you’re looking for a way to have one last bit of summer fun, this is for you! The Long Island Heritage Society is extending a warm invitation to all of Green Bay to go pay their island a visit.
They suggest you celebrate Labor Day weekend 2017 there (Saturday & Sunday, Sept. 2 & 3). How sweet is that?!
A day-trip complete with a 5-minute ferry ‘cruise’ right before school starts sounds like a pretty good idea.
And the ‘welcome mat’ will be rolled out:
The Tea Room will have a BBQ.
There will be a yard sale.
The Heritage Museum will be open.
The Heritage Church will be open to the public.
And, as always, there is a walking trail to take in!
See below for more details! You could also visit the Long Island website to learn more about the island before your visit.
The following was released by event organizers:

The ferry leaves from Pilley’s island. (Location on Google Maps, although Google has got the route wrong. The shorter dotted line is the Long Island route.) The ferry trip distance is so short to Long Island that you can see details of the L.I. dock from the Pilley’s dock!
