Al White, the postmaster, has written and produced a 15 page summary called A Brief History of Michigan, Bois Blanc Island and The Island Postal Service. He is offering them for sale for $3.00. They are on sale at Hawks and the post office. Or if you want to order one, send a check to postmaster at the Island post office and include $1.75 for shipping and handling. All proceeds go back to the post office funds to recoup the cost of printing, ect.

Al says often people come in with loads of questions at the post office so with the help of Mike White, he gathered historic info and narrates this summary from the glaciers to now.. I'm biased cuz he's my brother, but this narrative is impressive. Cool He pulled the history together and made it easier to understand and follow by keeping it simple.. Great Job, Al! I would recommend this highly..

Update.. A call from Al this morning.. The cost of shipping it to you is $2.00 not $1.75 as I had said in the previous post.. For a total of $5.00. Checks or money orders should be payable to Postmaster at the Bois Blanc Island post office.. Send your order there and Al will get your copy(ies) right out to you.. Additional copis will cost more because of the added weight.. Contact Al at the post office for more details. Proceeds will go back to the post office to help support it's existance on Bob-lo.. Thanks to everyone for your support! Very Happy
