Leelanau Conservancy Annual Picnic and Auction In Suttons Bay we are supporting and serving as a sponsor of the Leelanau Conservancy's 2011 Picnic and Auction. The Conservancy's Annual Picnic and Auction will be held Thursday, August 4, 2011.
Over 700 people attended the 2010 auction and over $100,000 was raised to help the Leelanau Conservancy in its mission to conserve the land, water and scenic character of Leelanau County. If your schedule permits, attend the picnic, donate an item, make a bid online or in person and volunteer to make this annual event a success. Visit their website at www.theconservancy.com to get your tickets to support this event too! Suttons Bay Fireworks Display and Celebration
Another important community event we sponsor is the Suttons Bay Annual Fireworks Display and Celebration held during Labor Day weekend. It's a way for us to give something back to the families of the local community at the close of the summer season. Held at dusk at the Suttons Bay Marina Park. Grab a blanket and pack a picnic basket full of snacks and beverages and join us after sunset to enjoy the fireworks display as it lights up the night sky over Suttons Bay. It's a fun night for all who attend. None of these events would be possible without the tireless efforts of community leaders and countless volunteers. We share our heartfelt thanks with our many friends and neighbors who work hard to celebrate and strengthen our communities. Whether in Farmington or in Suttons Bay, we look forward to seeing you “downtown” and "down by the bay." Dan A. Penning
