This month’s issue features news about our April 14 Virtual Fundraiser, an update on our Lake Leelanau shoreline map, and several volunteer opportunities. We hope you find this ebulletin timely and informative and welcome all and any feedback. If you have any comments, please send them to [email protected]
Get Ready for Our April 14 Virtual Fundraiser
Our Spring fundraiser is coming up soon. This online event will feature auction items such as art pieces, boat rides, educational activities, vacation opportunities, food and beverages, and door prizes. Details of how you can view the auction items, register to bid, donate cash or become a sponsor, will be announced in the next few days. Bidding for the auction items will open at the beginning of April and close at 8pm on Wednesday, April 14, when there will be a live drawing for door prizes.
In the meantime, if you have any questions about the event, or if you have:
- A skill that you would be willing to teach to others (sailing, tennis, fishing), or
- An experience to offer (a dinner, a hike), or
- A vacation property that you’re willing to offer, or
- A piece of art that you would be willing to part with, or
- If you or your business would like to be a sponsor
send us an email at [email protected]
All sponsors and donors of auction items or cash will receive receipts for tax purposes.
Hosts Wanted - Lake Science Tours
For our Spring Fundraiser, our Lake Biologist Brian Price has generously agreed to give two Science Tours on North Lake Leelanau and two on the South Lake. We need lakeshore boat or pontoon owners to host these two-hour boat rides. Touring the lake with Brian as your guide and the auction winners as your passengers will qualify as a donation for tax purposes. Email us at [email protected] if you’re willing to “captain” one of these fun and educational outings.
Our Lake Leelanau Shoreline Map
Thanks to those of you who responded to our January ebulletin by contributing additional neighborhood markers to our Google map which shows bays, creeks, beaches and other shoreline markers that are missing from published maps of Lake Leelanau. If you haven’t previously visited the map, click on any local point listed on the left side to see its location highlighted on the map. If you’d like to share a comment on this new resource, or know of a shoreline marker that’s still missing, send an email to [email protected]
Help Wanted - Leland July 4th Parade
Leland’s annual July 4th parade is a must-see event for hundreds of people, and this year our Association intends to enter a float that will grab everyone’s attention and bring a smile to their faces. If Leland’s July 4th parade is a must-see event for you and your family, and you enjoy organizing fun activities for grown-ups and children, we’d love to hear from you. Preparations for this event will start next month and we’re looking for a community volunteer to plan and lead our 2021 entry. Send an email to [email protected] if you’re interested.
