The header photo at the top of this page was taken on May 2, 2009. Many Hunn family members gathered to dedicate a sign being placed at the Newell-Hunn burial ground near Bowers Beach. Before the dedication they assembled at Wildcat to hear presentations on the history of Wildcat. The Friends of Wildcat evolved out of this gathering.
