Thirty-four years ago, on July 26, 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act was signed into law.  In honor of this, we will be hosting an ADA Celebration on Thursday, July 25th from 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm at McLain State Park in Hancock.

Please join us for food, games, and entertainment in celebration of this momentous event in history.

The Tamarack City Fantasy Football League (TCFFL) every year, in memory of our fallen friend and 2-Time Champion, Aaron “AC” Brooks, makes a donation to a local organization within the Copper Country. AC was a dearly loved member of the TCFFL as well as an active volunteer in the community. We truly believe that AC’s spirit lives on in volunteers and good work in the community and this is why we choose SAIL as our 2023 Volunteer group to receive our donation. For 2023 our donation in memory of AC is $200 to SAIL in his honor. Donations are now over $1,560 since 2017 in memory of our dear friend from the TCFFL. We plan on continuing to win much like AC did -- over and over again. Thank you for all you do for our community.
