1.  INDEPENDENCE DAY PICNIC and BIKE RIDE! … also known as the 4th of July Bike Ride and Picnic … but it’s not on the 4th … and we didn’t want to confuse anyone (especially Guy Benson who still insists that he was there for the signing of the Declaration of Independence … he's the fellow in the yellow vest).

 

So, get ready to pump up those bike tires for the Annual Lake Cadillac Bike Ride and Picnic on Saturday, July 1st. 

 

The Annual Lake Cadillac Bike Ride gets underway at 10 a.m. at the Rotary Pavilion (Band Shell) on the shores of Lake Cadillac in downtown Cadillac.  The trip around Lake Cadillac is about seven miles.  For those who wish to pedal the figure eight and go around Lake Mitchell, plan an additional 13 miles to your excursion. 

 

Following the bike ride there will be plenty of time to rest-up before the picnic at the Caberfae Ski Club.  Picnicking begins at 5:30 pm in the afternoon with cocktails, swapping lies and comfort food.  Please bring a dish to pass, your own beverage, place settings, and lawn chairs.  The club will spring for burgers and brats.  The Senior Grill Team promises to not interfere with the culinary art of those with the flippers.

 

The bike ride and picnic are being coordinated by two generations of the Demek family.  If you’re planning to attend, please RSVP to Sandy Demek at. (734) 591-0586, or email her at: sdemek@gmail.com.  Join the fun!  Be a firecracker … don’t be a dud!

 

2. WE’LL MISS THOSE POTHOLES … literally and figuratively.  The last half mile of Caberfae Road leading into the resorts will be paved this summer.  Yup, that’s right … right up to Cris Dippel’s front door on Ely Lane.  Why he wouldn’t spring for that last 300’ to the Ski Club gate is anyone’s guess.  Maybe before the snow falls he’ll have a change of heart and will do the job right.  When you see Cris, ask him to reconsider.

 

3. IT WILL BE HARD TO MISS WHAT’S NEW in the Caberfae Village.  The Mackenzie Lodge is getting a major facelift this summer.  The old balconies are coming off and new ones are going up.  New dormers are being added to the roofline and wide natural cedar trim is being added around the windows.  All this and more is giving the Mackenzie Lodge a commanding presence within the village and a beautiful new look.

 

4.  MARK YOU CALENDAR FOR THE FALL WORK BEE and GOLF OUTING,October 7th  

All play and no work will … well, anyway.  The Fall Work Bee will start at 8:30 a.m.on Saturday, October 7th.   The golf outing will get started shortly after the Work Bee on that same day (October 7th) at 2 p.m. at Caberfae Peaks.

 

5.  A LITTLE REMINDER ON HOW THE WORK BEE CREDIT WORKS.  If you attend a Work Bee before the season begins, or after the season ends, you will receive a credit on you club dues for the next year.  In other words, if you attended the fall 2016 Work Bee, or the Spring 2017 Work Bee, you will receive a credit on your 2017/18 Ski Club Dues.
