Week At The Lake

Presenting a new community honor for residents of Charlevoix and Emmet county supported by Pat O’Brien and Associates of Charlevoix and Boyne.


It’s called “A Week at the Lake”- The Local Heroes Awards.

The winner will receive a free week’s vacation on Lake Charlevoix.

“Created to recognize and reward the unsung heroes of service and contribution in our communities.”

We all know people in our community that always give and never ask.

They enjoy giving of themselves for others, improving lives, providing comfort, a reassuring hug or a smile. They are the “gold nuggets of good” in our area and while they are not motivated by thanks they are certainly deserving of it.

This is a chance to do a little something to recognize and appreciate all that they’ve done.



Just send in a letter or email nominating a deserving candidate and telling their unique story of service, sacrifice or contribution. Nominations are accepted until June 30th.

The finalists will be announced on July 5th at the Boyne City Stroll the Streets.  There will be an opportunity for the community to “like their favorites” online until July 31.

The winner will be announced Aug 2nd and rewarded with a much deserved “Week at the Lake” featuring a beautiful Lake Charlevoix home with up to 10 friends and family, use of a hi performance Tritoon boat and all the fixings for a final night barbecue jamboree.

Send your letter to Pat O’Brien and Associates or email us at lakeweek@patobrien.com

To nominate: Include your name and contact information, nominee name and contact, and the story of why they're a local hero.



Thank you to Boyne Watersports for sponsoring the tritoon!
