LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Thank you for Rotary Show support
Thank you all for your support of the Elk Rapids Rotary Show. Through your contributions we are able to give back to the community through our Rotary Good Works. This year was the 66th Rotary Show and it has become much more than a tradition and our biggest annual fundraiser. The show brings the community together ways beyond being entertained. It brings together Rotarians and community members as they plan, rehearse, share their talents and deliver the show. The show also builds friendships as we work toward a common goal of bringing an evening of laughter and fun. Your contributions go beyond monetary value to support our community; your contributions build goodwill throughout our community. Thank you!
Lorna Corso, Director
Don’t fall for lies
Watching the attack ad that Jack Bergman is running against Matt Morgan you’d think Morgan is a wild eyed radical. That’s utter nonsense, and Bergman knows it. Morgan is a Marine veteran with two tours in Iraq. He’s a gun owner and a hunter, and he does not want to confiscate our guns. Nor does he want to turn over our healthcare decisions to the government. He has said that one of the great things about the health care provided by the Marine Corps was that it left medical decisions to him and his doctor. Don’t fall for Bergman’s lies.

Downtown River Street looks great
During my walks around town I often stroll down River Street. Hats off to our shop owners who decorate so beautifully for every season! The storefronts are so charming with all the fall decorations. A big thank you for making our downtown so attractive for residents and visitors.
Thanks to all for such a fabulous event
Thank you so much to everyone for helping us celebrate our waterways and communities at the 4th annual Paddle Antrim Festival held September 13-15. We had 135 paddlers join us out on the water, kayaking anywhere from 7 to 42 miles through the Chain of Lakes over two days.
Thank you to Short’s Brewing Company for their continued support as our top sponsor and also to Pearl’s New Orleans Kitchen for their generous support. We are grateful to all of our sponsors, donors, paddlers, and volunteers who made it such a fabulous event, thank you.
Through this event we were able to raise over $22,000 to help us protect our lakes and rivers and connect people to our waterways. In the coming year, we will continue to focus on collaborating with partners on protecting water quality, educating paddlers on safety and ways to protect our waterways, and implementation of the Chain of Lakes Water Trail.
We appreciate all of the support and look forward to another great event next year!
Paddle Antrim Executive Director
