Les Cheneaux

By Robert W. Smith

John and Mary Lincks have arrived to spend the summer at their beautiful cottage on Cedarville Bay. They enjoy the cooler temperatures here much more than the 90-plus-degree temperatures in southern Florida.

Bill and Gail Heck from Ohio drove north for their 30th year to vacation at Waterlawn Cottages. They enjoy fishing and sightseeing. This is the first time they visited Northwoods Camp just north of Cedarville. They enjoyed seeing the Little Mac Bridge and the beautiful grounds and also the creek/stream they have along with the beautiful chapel. Gail, the camp manager, was very friendly and showed them around the grounds. It is indeed a beautiful spot. If you haven’t driven into the road that says “Northwood Camp,” you should do so.

Mary Rose Sickbold from Lansing is here in Cedarville having a fantastic time. She knows many people here, and we all enjoy her visit.

Dan and Donna Davis are unable to come to Les Cheneaux this year. We will miss you, and wish you better health.

A dinner and concert was held at Northwoods Camp last Friday evening. It was a full house. Dan Leach of Pickford performed a fantastic piano concert. To complete the evening, fireworks were displayed in the sky over the water, with the bridge in the background. It was an enjoyable evening for all who attended.

It’s wonderful to have so many folks visiting here in the Snows and enjoying the woods, water, and wildflowers. We’re glad you’re here.

Members of our school board are looking for a new superintendent for Cedarville High School. We will miss Amy Scott.

Many events are planned at the Les Cheneaux Historical and Maritime Museums this summer, schedules are available from the Historical Museum.

Sharon Blair Van Every is here for the summer. She has been here in the Islands for many years. Her father was Dr. Blair, who practiced medicine for many years in Sault Ste. Marie. Welcome back, Sharon. It’s wonderful that you’re here.

Sue Rischer has returned for the summer from her home in Arizona. She is active in the Les Cheneaux Arts Council and looks forward to working with the other members. Her daughter and family are staying at the cottage on Coryell Island and Sue is on Hill Island.

I wish you all a most enjoyable Fourth of July. We have a great reputation for having a fun day on the Fourth. The parade is always a big hit, as well as the games and other events in the afternoon. The fireworks are at dusk. We appreciate the Chamber of Commerce for taking charge of all the events for the Fourth of July. It’s always a wonderful day for us to celebrate.
