The Keweenaw Report Calendar is brought to you by Houghton Community Broadcasting. To add an announcement for your non-profit, non-partisan community organization, send the information to HoughtonRadio@up.net. For best results, please submit your request at least two weeks in advance.
Many of the events on our calendar are affected by the COVID-19 restrictions in place. Those that we been informed are canceled are marked as such. Items that are not marked may also be canceled, but we have not been informed of the change in status. Our best advice is to check in advance to see if those events are still being held.
