Keweenaw Kernewek Copper Country Cornish Cousins


Calumet, Michigan is now twinned with Camborne, Cornwall, UK. Check us our or our facebook page with the link below.


NEXT MEETING is at The Michigan House Restaurant in Calumet, MI at 6:00 on Sunday Oct 7th.

.We switched the date to be able to meet with Barry Gamble from Cornwall. Mr. Gamble has been very involved with the UNESCO World Heritage Site (mining) in Cornwall and Devon. He will only be in the Keweenaw from Sunday to Tuesday afternoon and has a busy schedule. However, he wanted to meet people with Cornish heritage. Please plan to be at the Michigan House at 6 p.m. on Sunday, October 7. We will have a social hour starting then so that Mr. Gamble can mix with the attendees. Menu orders will be taken around 6:45 and we will probably eat around 7. The business meeting will be shortened and the social hour will serve as the program. Please RSVP to Jean or Carol
