  • Some Northern Winter Fun

    It has been a few years since our winter has been cold enough to produce abundant Lake Michigan ice.  We saw it a few days ago while hiking Pyramid Point.  I knew we would be on a beach soon to explore all the beautiful blue and winter whiteness.   Read more...

  • Detroit Tigers In The Republic

    A line of eager Detroit Tigers fans snaked through our Traverse City store and down Front Street yesterday afternoon, hoping for the chance to snap a selfie with soon-to-be Hall of Famer Alan Trammell and pitchers Shane Greene and Daniel Stumpf as the Detroit Tigers Winter Caravan rolled into Northern Michigan.

  • Now Is The Time to Protect our National Lands

    One day last week, I needed to clear my head. I stepped out of my office, jogged the short distance toward the water, and was at the Lake Michigan shoreline in minutes. I spent the next hour walking the beach, breathing in the wonder of this majestic body of fresh water, and feeling grateful that this 35-mile stretch of National Lakeshore has been protected – not just for me, a Glen Arbor ‘local’ -- but for everyone in our country to enjoy.

  • The Joy of Giving

    The official start to the holiday season is just a week away, and at Cherry Republic we’ve had “joy” on our minds. The joy of living in Northern Michigan … the joy of two terrific cherry crops in a row … the joy of a successful summer and fall season (thanks to all of you). But perhaps most importantly, we are focused on the joy of giving. After all, nothing feels better than brightening someone’s world with a heartfelt gift of ruby red morsels of joy from the happy lands of Northern Michigan.   Read more...

  • A Wonderful Leaf Day 2017

    I took my family to the other side of Grand Traverse Bay — to Torch Lake, Bellaire and the farms, trails, woods and wetlands of Antrim County. It took some time to persuade the boys that this switch in Leaf Day activities would be worth it. Read more...

  • Two Boys and Their Lines

    The Coho came into the Crystal River recently.  Colebrook and Hawthorn have been driving by the fishermen on their way to school each day, which really put them in a fishing frenzy this past weekend.  On Friday night, we shopped in TC for spawn bags, hooks, and heavy duty line, and when the boys woke up Saturday morning they had one goal-- catch a big Coho, King or Chinook Salmon.   Read more...

  • Glen Arbor Campus Expansion

    Cherry Republic has been quietly planning for several years to expand our flagship Glen Arbor campus. Back in 2013, we started preparing for a long overdue renovation of our cafe. Over the years, the plans have blossomed into a bigger plan that will enhance every corner of our expanding property. Here's a sneak peek.. Read more...

  • A Toast to Resilience: Glen Arbor and the Storm of 2015

    August 2, 2017, marked the second anniversary of the Glen Arbor Storm of 2015. In a way, it's hard to believe it's been two years. Yet when I consider how far we've come since that fateful day, my heart is full of pride for our community. I think it's important to look back, though, and revisit the raw emotions of that time.  Read more...
