Sunny skies and a light northerly breeze greeted approximately 100 planes at the 2021 Washington Island Lions Club Fly-In Fish Boil on Saturday, July 17. The beautiful day brought everything from Cessnas to sea planes.
The community and aviators brought their appetites. Approximately 500 fish boil dinners were served from 700 pounds of whitefish donated to the event by Henriksen Fisheries in Ellison Bay. After a number of Island events were canceled in 2020, including the Fly-In Fish Boil, the Lions Club volunteers planned and worked hard to successfully bring the Washington Island community together again for this much anticipated and cherished annual event.
