Great Lakes Bay Magazine Publishes Its Last Issue

The unforeseen circumstances of this unexpected year have strained us all professionally as well as personally.

Business has borne the brunt of these sacrifices through constant changes and adaptations for the sake of survival. The struggles our local entrepreneurs face to simply keep their lights on and doors open are very real and very significant challenges. Because so many face such daily uphill climbs to keep the spark of their dreams aflame, they are understandably unable to continue supporting this publication with strained advertising budgets.

It is with a heavy heart to announce that this is our final issue of Great Lakes Bay Magazine.
