A tree (above) exposed by the receding shoreline, stands just to the west of the Glen Haven Cannery building on Sleeping Bear Bay.

It was a weekend full of end-of-summer hubbub in Leland. It felt like summer! With great sadness we announce the passing of Leo Jerry G. Shea, one of the mainstays of our Leland Community. Our heartfelt condolences to his wife Patty, Katie, Loretta, Michael, Kevin, Kerry and their families.
A cool and rainy get-up after an all night rain. A good day to go fishing and it was for this family this morning. Fishtown was a busy place
