June 9-11, 2023 (TENTATIVE) – FCHSM Trip to Mackinac City/St. Ignace, Michigan and Mackinac Island.
FCHSM is planning a special trip to Mackinac City and the Island as an additional event. We are planning the trip for June 8-10, 2023. We will not be providing transportation, because our members will be coming from all over, not just the Detroit area.
The main group is arriving on Thursday, June 8. On Friday, June 9, we will be spending the day on Mackinac Island, visiting Fort Mackinac, the Biddle House, Benjamin's Blacksmith Shop, The Fur Trading store, and/or St. Ann's Church (if open). On Saturday, June 10, We will go to Fort Michilimackinac in the morning, lunch will be on your own, and we will go to the Ojibwa Museum in St. Ignace in the afternoon, and we will have dinner in St. Ignace after. - On Sunday, June 11, we will go to Mill Creek in Mackinaw City in the morning, and head home after. Even if you aren't available for the entire time but you want to attend one or two events, please feel free to join us. We will be purchasing tickets for events once we arrive, as many of the hotels offer discount rates for tickets and there are some group event prices. Times, restaurants and additional details will be determined as we get closer to the trip, but if you are interested, please sign up below to get regular email updates. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0C4EA8AC29A3F49-fchsm11
