Filed under: Featured Posts,Shepler’s Ferry |

Sheplers-FerryMackinaw City, MI  –  November 6, 2013  –  October 31st marked the last day of passenger service for Shepler’s Ferry’s 2013 season. Captain Chris Shepler joined Major Discount and award-winning News Director Walt Lindala on the Shopping Show to discuss the 2013 season.

Shepler’s Ferry offers discounted ferry tickets through the Shopping Show during their passenger service season and, as Walt Lindala noted, they are one of the most popular items carried on the Shopping Show.

Although passenger services have ceased for the season, Shepler’s freight ship, Sacre Bleu, will continue to ferry goods and equipment to and from Mackinac Island until ice on the Straits of Mackinac shuts them down for the season.  Captain Shepler talked about improvements made last year to the freight boat and how you can set up a business cruise during good weather on the freight boat or any one of the Shepler’s boats.

“I’m a firm believer in what the State of Michigan is doing with the Pure Michigan campaign,” Captain Shepler said with regards to improving the economy through tourism and how that impacts the local region. The Pure Michigan ads shown on a national level generate a lot of exposure for Mackinac Island and for Shepler’s Ferry.

“Things are really, really good for us right now and we’re hoping for bigger and better things next year,” Captain Shepler said.

Listen to Captain Shepler discuss reinvesting into the economy.

A member of the Great Lakes Radio family since 2013, Nancy spends a lot of time at the front desk helping customers and the sales team. When not hard at work writing and editing, if this Sriracha enthusiast isn't experimenting in her kitchen, she can usually be found with her nose in a book or in front of a computer keeping up with her favorite blogs, researching topics for future articles, and playing World of Warcraft... FOR THE HORDE! (BattleTag: GingrMadness#1559)

Nancy's days of chasing little ones around are over for now, but she looks forward to chasing grandkids around in the future (the DISTANT future). ***UPDATE! That first grandkid is on the way! Little Liam Michael is expected to make his appearance right around Thanksgiving!*** Until then, she'll be enjoying the quiet and counting down the days until she can spoil her new grandson rotten!

Always in search of a good red and a great read (or a great red and a mediocre read), Nancy welcomes your suggestions on either.
