2014 Legend for the Winter White Out’s Poetry and Songwriting Contest Announced
The Winter White Out committee has announced the Legend for the 2014 Winter White Out’s Poetry and Songwriting Contest. The committee deviated from its past and selected “The Legend of the Birth of Mary Magdelene Bellecour”. The story took place soon after the building of Fort Sinclair in 1764, when the British still controlled the community. In addition to competing for the titles of St. Clair’s 2014 Poet Laureate and 2014 Bootlegger Balladeer, this year’s sponsor, the St. Clair Rotary Club, will be funding cash prizes for 1st ($250), 2nd ($150) and 3rd place ($100) for each category.

About St. Clair
St. Clair is Michigan’s fifth English speaking settlement. In 2014 the City will celebrate the 250th anniversary of the building of Fort Sinclair by the British at the junction of the River Huron (now renamed the St. Clair River) and the Pine River.
When I first moved to St. Clair, I thought this was just a sleepy retirement community. After 15 years as a St. Clair resident, I know what a great place it is to raise kids and run a business.
