In the 49 years since its founding, the Manitowish Waters Alliance has provided the structure for creating social connections that continue to support a strong, growing community. Generations of families from Manitowish Waters and nearby communities have been, and still are, represented in our membership ranks.
Through multiple fundraising efforts throughout each year, the Alliance has contributed funding and support to valuable community causes and groups too numerous to tally. At the close of 2019, the Alliance delivered monetary donations to Camp Jorn Child Care, the Manitowish Waters Skiing-Skeeters, the Manitowish Waters Fire Department, the new GROW! Community Garden, and the WinMan Trails.
And these same members know how to celebrate! Each year in July, the Alliance Summer Social event serves up fun, food, and libations to its members and guests. New and current members, alike, continue to comment that this gathering is one of the best community events of the year to get to know their neighbors and others in the area.
And to cap off a truly amazing 2019, on the evening of December 7th the Alliance and the Little Bohemia Lodge held its “1st Annual Mani-Wish Christmas Event” to help give some local families a Very Merry Christmas. In the Alliance’s entire history, we believe this was one of our most successful events - by any measure used - whether participants, sponsors, donors, volunteers or money raised! With this success, we were able to provide 26 local children with Christmas Gifts and 3 families with toys, clothing, Christmas dinner, and gas cards.
The “Mani-Wish Christmas” event will become a yearly tradition held on the first Saturday of December at Little Bohemia Lodge.
This is WHO we are. This is WHAT WE do.
