After we get the kids down, we often hear a quiet knock at the door. Our evening visitors have arrived from the other side of the lake. Bert and Mae are more than friends, they are family. Au Sable wouldn't be the same without them. Back in 1998 when I started my full time job at Au Sable I remember calling Bert, then financial manager, to ask about some budget questions and there began our friendship. Then when Ben and I started dating, we spent many hours seeing northern Michigan and being taken out to eat by the Froyslands. We count ourselves very fortunate to see them every summer.
