We recently discovered a recipe box belonging to Mildred Bartels, descendant of William and Margaret McClelland, who founded McClelland’s’ Beach. Mildred and her husband, Ed, also a checkers champion in two states, ran McClelland’s Beach for many years. Many of Grandma Bartels’ delicious recipes were humbly named “Hot Dish” along with their main ingredient as the title. Grandma Bartels’ “Bean Hot Dish”, shown on the little white piece of paper to the left of the recipe box, looks like it would be welcome at any McClelland’s Beach picnic or potluck.

Well, it had to happen sometime. All the people who took the plunge at McClelland’s Beach over the last few years should be feeling pretty good right about now.
“We’re hoping to get as many people there (at Monday’s meeting) as we can. I’ve had some emails from people who don’t live here in the wintertime. They’ve emailed me that they would like to be involved. So, if they can’t make the meeting, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or give us a call here at the office.”– Di Lorenzen
