Marbleye Classic Walleye Fishing Tournament
The Marbleye Classic was started by Chief William A. Beaudua in 2001. Since his death the tournament has been run by his family and friends. In addition to having fun fishing for walleye on the St. Clair River, the event raises funds for St. Clair’s Annual 4th of July fireworks display. This year the tournament will start at 4:00 pm on Friday, May 17, 2013 and end at noon on Sunday, May 19th. You can get more information on the tournament and locations where you can purchase tickets by going to http://www.marbleyeclassic.org/ or by calling the St. Clair Boat Harbor 810-329-4125
SCAA’s Street Banner Contest Reception
This is the fifth year for the St. Clair Art Association’s Public Art committee’s street banner contest. Each year artists are asked to design street banners. A jury of community members selects 20 entries to be made into banners. After the banners are completed the community is invited to vote for the top three banners. The winners are rewarded with cash prizes. You can support the Public Art Committee by attending its May 15th reception at the St. Clair Art Center, to announce the winners of this year’s street banner contest. The reception starts at 7:00 pm.
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.
