News from the Week

Stories from the week included a look at a neat new blog called Northern Michigan Foodies that seeks to highlight our great local food & drink, a feature on the role of the Grand Traverse Regional Community Foundation in Leelanau County and the latest national mention of Leelanau, this one from MSNBC.com’s fall color guide.
