On behalf of everyone within the Michigan Lake and Stream Associations extended family, we offer a heart-felt thank you to Cecile and Paul Kortier for all of their hard work and dedication over the course of the past twenty five years.
In an age when volunteerism seems to be giving way to a pervasive attitude of “what’s in it for me” – Cecile and Paul’s quarter of a century of pro-active commitment to our organization and to our ever worthy cause of preserving and protecting Michigan’s inland lakes and streams sets an unprecedented and probably unachievable example for all of us who follow in their footsteps! Having had the pleasure of working with Cecile and Paul for so many years, we are all profoundly aware of how much time and effort this dedicated couple devoted each year to ensuring the success of our annual conference.
Frankly, we cannot imagine that even one couple in a million would have been willing to put forth the significant effort that Cecile and Paul have so generously contributed as volunteers for over twenty five years!
How lucky Michigan Lake and Stream Associations is to have benefited so greatly from Cecile and Paul’s uncommon sense of devotion and commitment, and how lucky we all are to have experienced the honor and pleasure of getting to know them both!
