Les Cheneaux

By Robert W. Smith

We had mixed weather throughout the past week. It started out cool but then turned warm, with temperatures in the upper 30s to low 40s. Snowmobiling traffic was just average on the trails. There were a few on the lake, but not many. Be very careful. Some areas of Cedarville Bay are not safe. Fishing in Muskie Bay has been picking up, with mostly perch and a few pike. There have been reports of good fishing in Hessel Bay.

The Snowsfest snow statues and snow buddies were displayed in front of Islands Insurance, Cedarville Inn, Les Cheneaux Motel, Soo Co-op, Dr. Slater’s office, Taylor Lumber, and Great Lakes Boat Building School. The theme was Dr. Seuss characters. Snowsfest was very successful. Much work was done by many individuals and organizations. The town was nicely decorated and many activities were offered for people of all ages. Everyone had a good time.

Scott Graul and his wife, Kelli, and their children, Reilly and Reagan, visited Diane and Mike Patrick during Snowsfest. The Graul family lives in Lake Orion.

The community was very supportive while he was undergoing chemotherapy treatments. It’s great to see him doing so well. Best wishes to the entire family.

Katie Duman traveled to Cedarville to visit Jamie Hurban, a former high school friend who was in town for a few days.

The soup and salad luncheon held Thursday, February 16, at First Union Church was attended by 74 people, who really enjoyed the good food and fellowship. People were able to visit with friends that they don’t get to see very often. Pastor Jeff Meyers always has a few jokes and fun stories to share.
