Leelanau Almanac: Week of April 1 - 7

The Gortons fisherman? by John Levanen

We started with week off with our annual April Fool’s joke declaring Tim Allen running for Governor. Another story that we featured, that is not a joke is that Sugar Loaf may have a new owner. We also featured a story of a group in Northport, that is working on powering the village on 100% renewable energy. Lastly, jump into spring with the Leelanau Peninsula Vintners’ Spring Sip and Savor wine trail event.
