News from Big Stone Lake Stories Camp and Cornfest...

It was a creative, busy time last week at Big Stone Lake Stories camp at Bonanza Education Center which mostly wrapped up on Friday, August 17th. Some of the campers also helped host the camp's booth with Big Stone Lake Arts Council on Saturday, August 18th at Cornfest in Lakeside Park in Ortonville. Here they demonstrated paper making with Don Sherman, and invited the public to participate in the interactive "Words for Water," and "Land Markings" artworks. Campers also joined Lee Kanten on stage during the Kanten Brothers set in the pavillion to share the songs they'd worked on all week with Lee at camp.

Earlier Saturday, campers and team members presented the Big Stone Lake Stories project and performed music at the Citizens for Big Stone Lake annual meeting. The goal was to explore cooperation between concerned citizens and arts and youth groups in the common values they share around protecting Big Stone Lake.
