Summer Events


Long-Coverdale Poker Run – June 23rd

The Poker Run will take place from 12pm – 3pm on both lakes. Start and finish location will be at the Hershberger’s  (south bay, west side). A map with destinations and clues to find the card pick up points will be included at registration. Purchase any one of these denominations:  $5, $10, or $25.  CASH prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd best hand in each pool. The net proceeds will be supporting our annual fireworks.

Long Lake Fireworks – July 3rd

The 2017 fireworks program will be launched on Sunday, July 3rd at dark from a floating barge in the South bay. Remember to stay at least 350 feet away from the barge as the show will not begin until all boats are at a safe distance.

“Night Light” Flotilla – TBA

CHAIRPERSON NEEDED! This event is typically held on the 4th of July, but we need someone to lead the parade. There is little to no work involved and it is always a crowd pleaser.

Baldwin Lake Poker Run – July 21st

The BLA Poker Run will take place from 12pm – 3pm.  The check-in will be from 10am to 12pm at Bob Dumm’s property (sand volleyball court on Sunset Blvd., east side, south of Little Baldwin).  Poker hands can be purchased for $5, $10, or $25.  Cash prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd best hands in each pool.

Canoe Trip to Bristol – July 28th, Noon  

Join us for the 7th Annual Baldwin/ Long-Coverdale Lake Association Canoe Trip! The Keller/Fisher crew has once again volunteered to host another canoe adventure from their home on Long Lake (70063 Sunset Blvd, Union, MI) to Bristol, IN. The fun continues for about 4 hours as we paddle down the lake, forge through the lily pads and meander down Trout Creek to the St. Joe River. Contact Kena for more info.

US 12 Garage Sales – August 10th-12th

If you love to shop and love searching for hidden treasures and finding great bargains, this is the sale and trip for you! You will find everything from antiques, collectables, furniture, dishware, fresh garden produce, homemade jams and jellies, live entertainment, and much more.  Perhaps even more interesting than the “junk” are the people you will meet along the drive. The sales can be found along the highway at homes, farms, businesses, parking lots, and fields.  Some areas will have large numbers of vendors while others may be scattered and in some instances a traveler will have to go several miles or more without seeing a yard sale because of the rural nature of the highway. The Garage Sale Map will be online a few days prior to the sale to highlight the homes that have mapped their sales.
