    Comments Off on Wintefest Contest Results

    It was another great year this 2019 president’s day weekend to be up north and out and about in Glen Arbor. We had fun seeing our friends and neighbors and visitors too, great shopping deals and fun to be had at local watering holes. Despite the cold, the sun came out and we enjoyed getting outside, on the ice or grabbing some skis or snowshoes and hitting the hill or trails.
