Was Summer Back?

Was it just me? Or was summer BACK?

Part of that feeling, for me, came from the time I spent on and around the water as part of my new post with 7 Lakes Alliance. With an insider’s view, I’m even more impressed by the yeoman’s work this small nonprofit performs to conserve the region’s waters and the lands. To wit:

The work of conservation does not end with the summer; it stretches into the fall, then winter, then spring. After which, we anticipate seeing you again next summer. Excelsior!
