Sad News Dept:

It’s with deep sadness that we report the passing on long time Leland resident Scott Craig on April 18th. I am reposting our Leland Report from July, 2020 when Scott came out with his book “Laughing In Leelanau”. We met last at the Leland Library where he was showing his books. Scott was a writer, director, and producer for over 40 years and a friend of our family. He will be missed. A service will take place on June 24 at The Old Art Building in Leland, Michigan.

Leland Report, July 12,2020:

Thought I would give Scott Craig a plug with the publishing of his new book “Laughing in Leelanau”. Alan Campbell wrote a nice article about Scott for the Leelanau Enterprise this week.  Bookstores should be stocked with the book next week.

Below is a Bar-Be-Cruise picture of Scott and his daughter Amy Coleman.  Can anyone tell me the year?
