Copper Harbor Checkpoint - Sherry Mattson

Sherry has been involved in CopperDog150 since the start, with the exception of 2011 when she was in the hospital. Sherry started as a dog handler, but because of back issues went on to trail crossings, musher's luncheon, bag check coordinator, and Copper Harbor Coordinator.

Sherry likes to say her DNA is from here; her great grandfather worked the mill at Lac Labelle. The family later settled in Dollar Bay when her grandmother and the rest of the family came to live in the Copper Country in 1888. She has spent time up here every year of her life, and is grateful to be retired here. Sherry and her husband built their cabin in 2005. They made regular visits, at least twice a year, from 2006 to 2010. They moved here permanently in 2010. Sherry and her husband are both retired Episcopal priests, who love the woods and their 20 acres on Lake Superior. Sherry also enjoys photography, quilting, crocheting and making various goodies for the grandchildren. One daughter lives down state with her husband and the other is in North Carolina with her family.
