Washington Island has been welcoming new businesses along with its usual influx of visitors this summer. In recent months, the island has been able to attract a full-time optometrist and doctor to open clinics while new businesses have also opened their doors to serve residents tasty treats or quench their thirst for adventure. Town of Washington chairperson John Rader says as more activity has been happening on the island, even more activity is happening on the way to it.
Washington Island’s arts community will have an especially busy week as its Art Association hosts the final days of its Red Cup Art Show while its music festival begins Monday.
