Our very fortunate 3rd, 4th and 5th graders were invited to attend the ceremony to launch the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore Quarter on Wednesday, April 11th at Legendary Waters Resort.  The quarter is the 42nd coin to be released in the United States Mint’s “America the Beautiful” Quarters Program. The former mayor of Bayfield Larry MacDonald served as master of ceremonies. The Ojibwe Blessing opened the event followed by the Red Cliff VFW presenting the colors, the Sea Scouts leading the Pledge of Allegiance, the Bayfield High School Choir singing the National Anthem and the Wiigiwaam Express Red Cliff Youth Drum Group performing the Flag and Veterans’ Song.  Red Cliff Elder Henry Buffalo spoke about the history of the Ojibwe people and the connections to the design of the coin. Apostle Islands National Lakeshore Superintendent Bob Krumenaker spoke about the park’s rich history and the relationship between the different organizations. A representative from the United States Mint spoke about the coin and introduced its designer, Richard Masters.  After the ceremony, each student was given a shiny new Apostle Islands National Lakeshore Quarter. Our students and teachers were thankful to participate in this important historical event.
