Chromebooks Delivered to Local Seniors

Thanks to the Community Planning and Care Coordination Project Ely Area Coalition, led by Northwoods Partners and grant funds from the Northland Foundation, we were able to provide brand new Chromebooks to Carefree Living Ely, Carefree Living Babbitt, Boundary Waters Care Center, and the Ely Area Senior Center.  Northwoods Partners was also granted a Chromebook for our "lending library". 

These computers are intended to increase opportunities for seniors to be socially engaged, by providing technology and equipment to promote remote contact with family and caregivers.

Yes, Festival of Trees is back this year!

     The much-anticipated Northwoods Partners 2021 Festival of Trees is at long last upon us.  With the generous assistance of our community of supporters, and a little holiday magic, the lobby of the Grand Ely Lodge will once again be transformed into a winter wonderland.  Complete with beautifully decorated Christmas trees, wreaths, and a holiday boutique.  This year’s holiday event will run November 25 through December 5.

     The Magic begins at dawn Thanksgiving morning, when the trees will be lit for the first time and they will remain lit until noon on December 5th.  Thanksgiving evening, at 5 pm Bidding on the Decorated Trees and Wreaths begins.  5pm is also the opening time for the Holiday Boutique, full of beautiful hand-crafted holiday must-haves and giftable items.  Back by popular demand are Buy it Now items and the Chairs for Care.  Each chair has been designed by local artists and crafters. Bidding and the boutique close at noon on Sunday, December 5th.

     While this holiday magic lasts only 11 days, it continues throughout the year in the hearts of those who participate and support the Festival of Trees.  Most of all, the magic continues in the lives of our area seniors that are helped by Northwoods Partners every day.

     Please note that due to COVID restrictions and the ongoing positive caseload in our area, there will be NO Thanksgiving Evening lighting ceremony this year.

Today is National Grandparent's Day

Date When Celebrated : the first Sunday after Labor Day

It is only right and fitting that one day of the year is set aside to honor our grandparents. It is time to celebrate those special people who are always there with a hug, a kiss, a cookie, something special, or take us somewhere.

National Grandparent's Day originated in 1978. Then President Jimmy Carter declared it to be the first Sunday after Labor Day.

If you can, enjoy the day with them. That is the greatest gift they can receive from you. If you can't see them, call them, or skype. When you call, make sure you have the time for a long conversation. Remember, grandparents will always ask about you first and listen intently to everything you have to say. They are never rushed or in a hurry. They are there just for you.
