    ALL Great Lakes Cruising Club members,      This email to the Foundation, which we've forwarded, is from one of our recently approved Grant applications. The original request was for funds to purchase a couple of 'header,' docks to launch the creation of a marina at the Silver Islet Harbour (S-128) on Lake Superior.

Their success so far has even exceeded their expectations, and they are now well ahead of schedule with their development of this harbour.
