The ATHENA Award “honors individuals who strive toward the highest levels of professional accomplishments, women and men who excel in their chosen field, have devoted time and energy to their community in a meaningful way, and who also open paths so that others may follow.”
In an email statement, Julie Koehn writes, ”
“WLEN is honored and humbled to be the recipient of this year’s Parthenon Award. Our company strives to create a culture where everyone can thrive based on what their individual abilities can contribute to the team.

DLYC Vice Commodore Patty Clark receives state recognition
Patty Clark thought she was going to Grand Rapids recently to meet with Country Lines staff about a magazine story on the Sustainable Energy-Efficient Demonstration House project which she has an integral role in developing. The real reason for the visit was announced during the closing moments of the Wolverine Power Symposium and Michigan Electric Cooperative Association (MECA) annual meeting.
Patty was recognized as the first recipient of MECA’s new Good Neighbor Watch Co-op Community Service Award. Electric co-ops have a long history of demonstrating the co-op principle of “Concern for Community” by providing outstanding leadership in the communities they serve. “Much of this leadership is accomplished through the efforts of co-op employees,” says Casey Clark, MECA’s communications and marketing director. The award was designed to honor the volunteer contributions these employees make to improve the quality of life in their communities and strengthen the co-op’s position. There are nine electric cooperatives in the State of Michigan.
Long before joining Team Midwest as the Community Development Specialist in Adrian, Patty was actively involved as a volunteer and community leader in Lenawee County. She is a member of and has held several leadership roles in the Adrian Rotary Club and Adrian Rotary Foundation, and actively contributes time and energy to their many outreach efforts across Lenawee County. She also serves in volunteer leadership roles with the Athena of Lenawee Council and the Devils Lake Yacht Club.

The 2014 season is just a few weeks away.
April will be here in soon!
Hang in there.
We hope that you had a great season. As usual, we’re all a little sad to end the summer but it makes it all the more special when we get to open in April.
Some groups continue to meet regularly, however. If you’re a euchre player or book enthusiast, ask about how to join in.
Have a great fall and winter!
Devils Lake Yacht Club
September 14 – 15, 2013
The Bruce Goldsmith Memorial Regatta, held September 14 & 15, was the 70th consecutive annual regatta hosted by Devils Lake Yacht Club. 21 Lightnings & 16 Sunfish arrived to find cool temperatures, abundant sunshine and no wind. After 2 on shore postponements Saturday’s racing was cancelled. The afternoon was spent catching up with old friends, telling Bruce stories, having a few beers, martins & stingers, watching football and the old young guys having an onshore spinnaker raising/dousing competition. Evening entertainment included dinner in the club, live music and planning how to crash the ongoing wedding & reception on the side lawn.
Sunday morning arrived with cool, light, southerly winds. The race committee, headed by Merrill Bales, managed to get in 5 races. Team Dieball,(Ernie + Jacqueline, Carrie Houtman, North Cape Yacht Club) in the Lightnings & Dan Norton (Devils Lake Yacht Club) in the Sunfish showed their starting prowess in the highly favored pin end starts, each handily winning their respective fleets. In the Lightnings runner up was James Taylor (Carl Taylor, George Auer, Cowan Lake) & 3rd Surge Vanderhorst (Grace & Glenn Hummer, Sandusky). Sunfish runner up was Ron McHenry (Pymatuning) followed by Leland Brode (Lake Bluff.)
Competition for the “Better to be Bad & Colorful than Dull & Mediocre” award was somewhat muted as the “Spinnaker Ninja” team of Try Rose, Anneliese Kittrell & Mike Garza won going away. Special mention went to the Bruin like behavior of defending champ John McCree who arrived last minute with no crew & no place to stay and would have been top 3 except for a last race OCS. Bruce would have been proud.
There will be more weather next year. Guaranteed. Hope to see you here.
Dave Laidlaw, Regatta Chair
