S.S. Badger
Sunday, May 7, 2017

The S.S. Badger is the last coal-fired passenger steamship in operation in the United States. She has provided a fun, reliable and affordable shortcut across beautiful Lake Michigan for more than 60 years and has transported millions of passengers since her re-birth in 1992.
In 2016, the S.S. Badger received the nation's highest historic honor when the Department of Interior designated the Badger as a National Historic Landmark. Additionally, the Badger is extremely unique in that she is a landmark that moves. Read the full article.  
Every Sunday in the Herald Times Reporter, The Chamber of Manitowoc County features members in "The Chamber Notebook" located on the front page of the Business section. This exposure is just another value-added opportunity with your Chamber membership.

For available dates, call our office at 920.684.5575 or email laura@chambermanitowoccounty.org to schedule your Chamber Notebook article.
