TI Life Happenings in May ‘17

TI Life Happenings in May ‘17

It is easy to find headlines every day describing the problems of high water on the St. Lawrence River. But in addition to the loss of property and damage to docks and boathouses, is the loss of income for our Island economy.

Boldt Castle has a late opening; tour boats are reducing excursions, and most gas docks are closed until further notice. There is also a grave concern for the next two weeks, as there will be more erosion with wind and waves. Please stay safe – turn off the dock and boathouse power and watch for floating debris.
