Robert (Bob) and Maxine (Max) Cameron raised their family in Saginaw Township. They transferred to Grand Rapids in the 1980’s and retired in Elk Rapids in the early 2000’s. They had vacationed in the area for many years before permanently moving to Elk Lake
Bob was a manager for a General Electric Supply Company. Maxine had different positions within the Saginaw Township and Grand Rapids School Systems.
Bob and Max have 3 children: Craig Cameron, DDS (Laura) of Williamsburg, Carole Muscat of Florida, and Rob Cameron (Linda) of Manistee. They have 5 grandchildren, 2 great-grandchildren and another one due this June.
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.
Most of the pair’s volunteering has revolved around the Elk Rapids Chamber of Commerce, the First Presbyterian Church and Harbor Days.
For many years Bob and Max have volunteered for the Elk Rapids Chamber of Commerce. They have spent many of 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 Chamber table at Wednesday Nights on River Street.
When it comes to Harbor Days, Bob and Max have been the team that registers your float for the Harbor Days Parade. The day of the parade you will find them in front of the Twisted Fish Gallery making sure you have the correct identification number on your float, car, or truck. You will also be able to pick them out as members of the Harbor Voices.
