Grassroots Effort to Build Awareness of S.S. Badger Future



May 23, 2011, LUDINGTON, Mich. - In an effort to build awareness and support of the continued operation of the S.S. Badger beyond the 2012 EPA deadline, 7 members of community have joined together to begin a grassroots effort- Save Our Ship!



Mayor John Henderson, Dr. Bill Anderson, Brandy Henderson, Barry Neal, Brad Reed, Todd Reed and Heather Venzke have come together to spread the message that the Ludington Area needs the S.S. Badger to continue operations beyond 2012 in order to remain a competitive player in the region’s tourism and manufacturing industries.



“There is a real possibility that the S.S. Badger may have to cease operations in December 2012, but we are hopeful that the S.O.S. campaign will help demonstrate that our communities need the S.S. Badger and influence Lake Michigan Carferry and the federal government to come to an acceptable solution to conitinue operations”, John Henderson, Mayor of Ludington said.



The S.O.S. Task Force has teamed up with Mayor Justin Nickels from the City of Manitowoc and other members of the community to take on this issue together, as the S.S. Badger’s operations affect both communities.



“The S.S. Badger is an important asset to both of our communities and surrounding regions,” Mayor Henderson said. “We look forward to working together with Manitowoc and bringing light to the issue at hand”.



“The S.S. Badger really is the anchor of our community; it is the cultural, historical and economic centerpiece of Ludington” Brad Reed, SOS Task Force member and co-owner of Todd & Brad Reed Photography said.



“The Save Our Ship campaign is focused on informing the public of the issue and gathering the community together to make sure that in the end, the S.S. Badger remains in service”, Todd Reed, co-owner of Todd & Brad Reed Photography added.



Save Our Ship is the beneficiary of the online auction of authentic S.S. Badger and carferry artifacts taking place now through May 26th 6pm ET at www.ssbadgerstore.com/auction. Items include a life ring, rare photographs, captain’s jackets, a chadburn and many more historic artifacts.



The community is encouraged to get involved and join the S.O.S. Team help SAVE OUR SHIP by visiting the S.O.S. website, www.sosbadger.com.
