Like many wonderful people in our community, Bob and Max vacationed in the area for many years before permanently moving to
Elk Lake in early 2000’s after retirement.
Bob and Max make quite a pair when it comes to volunteering. Max’s organizational skills and Bob’s social skills make them an outstanding team.
Since joining the community they have spent many mornings answering phones, organizing the office, assisting with mailings, changing letters on the old sign, selling carnival tickets, helping vendors register for the farmer’s market, and manning the table during Wednesday Nights on River Street for the Chamber. When Harbor Day’s became its own independent associationmid 2000’s, Bob and Max transitioned their volunteer time to being the first–line of defense for the Grande Parade as entries begin to arrive Saturday morning.
I use the word defense because it is big job managing approximately 100 various size units and the number of people for each unit coming at you. With radio in hand to announce changes to the parade logistics team and the president or obtain information as needed, this gate keeper team (positioned just off of US 31 in front of Twisted Fish) greet, check in, and direct each participant as to where they need to line-up.
Bob and Max do an amazing job representing Elk Rapids Harbor Days year after year continually helping to make one of the festivals largest attractionsa huge success! We are very fortunate to have Team Cameron as part of the Harbor Days volunteer family.
I would like to introduce Bob and Maxine’s 2 sons and their wives: Craig and his wife Laura of Williamsburg and Rob and his wife Linda of Manistee.
Bob and Max, on behalf of the Elk Rapids Harbor Day Board we honor you as our All Stars and truly appreciate you.
