LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Letter prompts more memories, story suggestion

Dear Editor,

I enjoyed reading Joan La Ban’s letter regarding the Bostwick Lake Inn (BLI), especially the comments on Jim and Sue Bert. If somebody has their biography, it would make excellent reading, especially Sue Bert’s history in the theater.

My dad, Frank Elerick, used to stop at the BLI for a beer after work, and take my brother George and me inside once in a while to play an arcade-type game, an electronic machine gun that shot at a Japanese sub. We were probably 6 and 7 years old and had to stand on wooden chairs to reach the gun. This was during WWII, and a direct hit on the sub brought cheers from the bar.

Looking forward to visiting BLI later this month.

Local photographer praised by national organization

Dear Editor,

Bob and I recently hosted the 34th Annual Bobby Jones Open in Grand Rapids. We are so grateful to have Douglas Photography as a local business. He took the best group picture of the golfers. The quality of his work is outstanding and the pricing is so reasonable. There are many places he could have his business and we are so fortunate to have a gifted local photographer.
