I knew it wouldn't be long and someone would come up with a T-shirt for the fire.
Luce County Community Resources Rec Center is selling T-shirts. The profits will be used for the Youth Center. The shirts come in grey, blue and black. Sizes range from size M-3X. For more info call 906-293-3729.
There are two choices. (Wish I had a photo so I could show you). One shows the outline of a map of the whole U.P. with a Blackhawk and Bambi bucket "hovering" over the area of where the fire was. Then below the outline of the U.P. it says "Newberry, Michigan 2007" Across the map it says Sleeper Lake Fire. This is a drawing, not photos.
The other one is more of a caricature or possibly could be considered a cartoon drawing of a DNR pumper truck headed down a two track into the woods. There is a little bull dozer off to the side of some pine trees and a moose calmly laying back soaking his feet in a pond. There is one of the Minnesota tankers flying over head. The smoke from the fire spells out Sleeper Lake.
They will take mail orders but you will have to pay extra for shipping. The cost per shirt is $17 regardless of size.
