PANCAKE BREAKFAST – Moved to September 4, 8:00 – 10:30 The annual all-you-can-eat breakfast typically kicks off our summer season but, because of social distancing, we are moving it to close our summer. Hopefully by then, we can gather and enjoy the blueberry and regular pancakes, sausage, orange juice, coffee and milk and we will be ready to serve at the Presque Isle Lodge. We served over 300 guests in 2019 and we hope to see even more of you this year! Come on back again to enjoy a fabulous breakfast and wind down another great season. Breakfast charge is $7.00 for
adults, $3.00 for children.


GAME NIGHT – JUNE 23 – 7:00 pm until everyone is happy After careful
consideration, we decided not to cancel this event. We had to modify because of Covid. It begins with cards or games you bring along to play with your friends or family.
