S.O.N.S. Stuff


Our founding members felt that a badge or logo would be appropriate to display membership to the club and its’ goal “Save Our Native Species”. They also decided that a button would be best suited for this purpose. The button was reminiscent of times when the PA fishing license was printed on a button to be pinned to the fisherman’s outer garments.  Karen Cunningham a local artist was commissioned to design a logo that best displayed the S.O.N.S message. Karen is now deceased. Her husband, Wayne Cunningham,  described how she toured various areas around Presque Isle Bay looking for scenes that depicted a “Bucket Fisherman”. After many sketches, she drew a scene from the North Pier of the channel entrance to the Erie Harbor. The scene depicts a fisherman on the pier with his bucket. This logo was adopted by the S.O.N.S. and has been a proud symbol of membership to the S.O.N.S for thirty years. 

The color scheme of the pin changes each year.
