The Ridges Sanctuary in Baileys Harbor has invited Door County residents and visitors alike to participate in The Ridges Memories Project. The project will showcase a collection of stories, remembrances, and reflections that relate the cultural history of The Ridges, celebrating the natural beauty and spirit of the land and community.
Interested contributors are welcome to share recollections of The Ridges Sanctuary from last summer or 50 years ago, to submit three lines or three pages, or to submit poetry, sketches, and photos. No special writing skills are needed – only a willingness to reflect and share in one form or another about The Ridges.
Everyone who submits a memory or photo will have their name entered in a drawing for one of 10 of the published books coming out in early 2012 for The Ridges’ 75th Anniversary year. The deadline for submissions is June 1, 2011. The Ridges will return photos.
Those interested are asked to submit electronically by emailing [email protected] or send hard copies to Cathleen Haskins, PO Box 63, Baileys Harbor, WI 54202.
For more information call Cathleen Haskins, volunteer coordinator for the Memories Project, at 262.949.4617.
