Les Cheneaux

By Robert W. Smith

Pastor Jeff and Becky Meyers joined me for dinner at Karl’s Restaurant in Sault Ste. Marie Friday, January 13. We enjoyed watching two freighters pass through the Soo Locks. We were glad we got to see them, as the Soo Locks closed Sunday, January 15.

Clyde Jenkins, a former graduate of Cedarville High School several years ago, is a great musician and athlete. He will be playing his guitar and singing at Ang-Gio’s Restaurant Thursday, January 26, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The program is free and open to the public.

Congratulations to Karl and Paula Nelson, whose grandson, Elliott, and his wife have a new baby girl.

There just isn’t any good information about the ice and snow here in Les Cheneaux. The weather has been in the high 30s and low 40s, so the ice is definitely not safe, and many of the snowmobile trails are not very good, either. Always check with those in the know for ice and snow conditions before you make any plans.

We extend deepest sympathy to the family of Lillian Jennings, who passed away Monday, January 2, in Lansing. Lillian spent many years living in Les Cheneaux in the summers with her husband, Richard, and her family. She was a very thoughtful and talented lady. She enjoyed living on the lakeside east of Cedarville. An obituary was published in the January 12 issue of The St. Ignace News.

I received a really wonderful card from Roger Heuck. He and his family have been longtime visitors and living in Les Cheneaux Islands for several years. I hope to share more about the Heucks very soon. I hope they are enjoying every day they spend in the south.

The first Cabin Fever Days for Women for 2017 is Thursday, January 26, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Bethel Lutheran Church in Cedarville. Everyone interested is encouraged to bring a craft project to work on and a dish to pass for lunch at noon. Host churches will provide desserts, hot and cold beverages, and table service. For more information, contact Gillian Bickham at (906) 484-4002 or Margie Denoyer at (906) 484-3863.
