Writers Read is still meeting -- only once per month, first Thursday of the month. The Front Porch is on their winter hours closing at 5 pm, so the group has been meeting at the Forest Service Office (1393 Hwy 169 - across from the Wolf Center). Meetings will be held at the Forest Service until May, when they will be back at the Front Porch.

The group throws out an optional topic each month. People are welcome to bring anything they are working on rather than writing on the group topic. Any genre welcome. Shy writers do not have to share anything until they are comfortable. New writers are always welcome! FREE!

Jeremy was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis when he was 6 months old, and lived until he was 27 years old. Jeremy’s motto was to “live for today and not for tomorrow.” In all of Jeremy’s setbacks incurred with his Cystic Fibrosis, he never let them get in the way of his love and passion for fishing on the White Iron Chain of Lakes. To honor his memory, we will be hosting an annual walleye tournament on White Iron, Farm and Garden Lakes in Ely in Jeremy’s name with proceeds going to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to help fund research. Contact Michael Rush Hiltbrunner at 218-235-8134 for more information. $30.00 per person includes A Ribeye Steak Dinner (5 pm to 6:30 pm) and a Gift Bag.
