Future of 1,000-Acre Cheboygan County Property Uncertain
The Walter and May Reuther Family Education Center on Black Lake, owned by the United Auto Workers, is expected to be on the market by the end of the month. The expected sale is promoted by the recession and declining membership. Since the 190's, UAW members used the Center, which includes a golf course and other amenities, for conferences and educational opportunities. Cheboygan County Administrator Michael Overton says as long as a buyer uses the property for resort-like purposes there should be minimal impact on the area. 9&10's Christina Vecchioni and photojournalist Aaron Smith have more details.
