7/8/16 – The 2016 Sawbill crew is eagerly awaiting the arrival of many former crew members and their families this weekend in order to celebrate Sawbill’s 60th Anniversary.
Sawbill Canoe Outfitters was opened in 1957 by Frank and Mary Alice Hansen. At that time they had just a few sleeping bags and six canoes. About 30 years had passed when Bill and Cindy Hansen took over the business for another 30 years. This past year they sold the business to their daughter Clare and her husband Dan. Sawbill now offers a variety of services and Clare and Dan are continuing the family tradition, helping others to enjoy the BWCA.
