News from the Week

Stories from the week included National Cherry Month and the evolving campaign to market cherries as a healthy food, a little more about prospective Sugar Loaf owner Brad Lutz and our new Leelanau Business Notes page where you can post news from your Leelanau or Traverse City area business (including of course help wanted postings!). We also had a pair of photos from Empire’s North Bar Lake and South Bar Lake that prove that Leelanau is truly a four season swimming destination!
