Legacy Event, 2016

In the end, the rain held off for just long enough and we had a wonderful gathering!  The 2016 Legacy Event was held on Saturday, August 27th at the lakeside home of the Alpaughs, near Neddows Bay.  We had a great turnout and would like to thank the Alpaughs for hosting us in such a congenial setting. The Legacy Event is open to all Kayakers, Runabouts, and Cruisers, and is planned, catered and run by our dedicated board.

President Nick Fleezanis thanked the many committee members for their planning and organization.  Nick also presented Wayne Wunderlich with a Gene Rantz giclee print of the Narrows, in recognition of his 30+ years of service to LLLA and his dedication to this lake we all love.  The evening was made even more special by the musical renderings of Barb Kooberstad, who entertained us with voice and guitar.  It was a special night!

  1. Mother nature helped us out because the rain stopped just before we started setting up and began again as the event was closing. The food, the wine, the host and hostess, Peter and Vicki Alpaugh, were more than gracious. A big thank you to all those members who attended and for their financial support of the Lake Leelanau Lake Association,
