IRON MOUNTAIN — What a way to start the day. Sunshine and music with Alice Derwinski at the piano as members and guests sang some favorite songs from the 1920s and up. This was the setting for Monday morning’s Golden K meeting.

Mike Werner served as a chairman for the day as guests were welcomed. Lois Outcelt, program chairwoman, gave the thought for the day.

Don Pedo read the Happy Dollars, which came from Orice Walters, happy about a weekend with family to attend a piano recital her great-grandchildren participated in and also the high school graduation of a grandson.

The annual picnic for members and guests will be Monday, July 16, at the Cowboy Lake pavilion in Kingsford.

Outcelt introduced Jason Rivard, manager, and assistant Emily Bieghler of the George Young Recreational Complex in Iron River. They explained the mission statement, some historical background and future plans based on the vision of George and Margaret Young.

This includes a place where people can enjoy golf, biking, hiking, water recreation, cabin rental and more during the four seasons at this more than 3,000 acres of beautiful natural setting in Iron County.

A professional golf course designer is involved in evaluating and planning for a future redesign and renovation of the golf course, which would result in the recreational complex becoming a premier regional destination.

Emphasis will be on encouraging youth to participate in golf activities and more, with special rates for juniors and residents of Iron County.

The recently renovated FireBrick Bar and Grill offers sandwiches, hamburgers and other casual dining items for lunches and evening dinners.
