thecribThank you for reading our June/July issue. Summer stories include a story about South Manitou. I try and visit there at least once every season and learn something new each time. Seeing the crib from the boat while in the Manitou Passage is a favorite photo snapping site.  Camping on the Island is a wonderful experience. Many are anxious to swim and enjoy the beaches. We need to keep them healthy. Read the story on page 13 to see how you can help.

We celebrate dads in June and our guest grandparent is Papa Chuck Valleau. He shares his joy of being a grandfather in A Grand Perspective column on page 14. My sister Karen Trolenberg wrote about weeding Grandpa’s garden for them as they aged. My Dad (Chuck Kalchik) loved to grill for his family. We loved that he loved that. Check out the grilling business story on page 8.

There are many festivals, fairs, farm markets and events scheduled in our area and so much offered to keep us entertained and active.

Happy Fathers Day to all area Dads, and have a safe and happy summer.

Laura Lee Kalchik
