Leadership Big Canoe (LBC) graduated 25 participants—its 13th class—on Friday, April 27. The LBC program seeks “to provide specific education and hands-on training designed to give current and emerging community leaders opportunities to become knowledgeable about Big Canoe and to enhance their leadership skills.”

  • Short Term Rentals within the Big Canoe Community - team members included Suzanne Harman, Rick Himes, Jim Billmeyer, Babs Price. Elizabeth Thompson, Bob White and Meg Rooney, advisor to the team.
