Community Calendar

The Keweenaw Report Calendar is brought to you by Houghton Community Broadcasting. To add an announcement for your non-profit, community organization, send the information to HoughtonRadio@up.net. For best results, please submit your request at least two weeks in advance.

Scroll down past the calendar to see other general community announcements.

The first Justin Fitch Memorial Ruck will be held on Saturday, October 8th, in Houghton. The Ruck will consist of a hike through the city, followed by an extended opportunity to walk at Michigan Tech. Participants are asked to wear a backpack, to honor soldiers who have committed suicide following their service in war zones. Participants are also encouraged to raise money to support Active Heroes, which works to assist veterans who are experiencing depression.

The first Houghton County Fair Craft Show will be held on Saturday, August 27th, from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm. Crafters who would like to sign up may do so online here. The cost is $25.00, which includes a table, a chair, and a one-day pass to the fair.

If you have books you don’t need, bring them to the Bookworm in Houghton, and donate them┬áto the Big Brothers Big Sisters account. When the books are sold, the money is credited to BBBS, to be used for free books for their kids.
