Around Thanksgiving time, the students and staff at Three Lakes Academy had a harvest gathering called "The Three Fires". The Three Fires are meant to represent the three Manistique Lakes that surround the community of Curtis, and perhaps invoke an indigenous peoples flavor to the gathering.
There were three bonfires set up on the lawn of the Academy, at each point of the triangle. There were tables set up on the lawn with homemade placemats taped to the tables. It was COLD so the fires were a welcome treat.
Will was "Keeper of the Flame" and he ran from fire to fire to light them, signifying the start of the feast.
