Cross-border family makes best of separation

Former Saultite reunites with local members of her family - sort of

SooToday has received a letter and pictures from a former Saultite, Shelley Marshall Shankle

Writing from Canton Ohio.

I grew up in the Soo, lived there for 30 years, and all my family is still there.

Every year my husband and I travel to Mackinac City for two weeks of camping at Tee Pee Campground, and every year my sister and Dad join us. Well, this year they were not able to because of the border being closed.

So I was thinking of a way I could at least see them since I was so close to the Soo. We decided to head to Soo Michigan and go on the lock tour boat, which goes through both Canadian/American locks.

We got to see both of them, yeah!!!.
