Pontoons go out on the waves too, although bundling up is recommended as the wind can drop temperatures quickly on our high seas. Before it gets too chilly, why not pack a picnic and enjoy an Indian Summer evening overlooking the water? (Photo by Steve Papke)

  • John Thompson, 
General Manager, Big Canoe Property  Owners Association
  • The POA has implemented a new employee orientation program called Canoe Connection. The day-long program educates new employees about the history, philosophy and culture of Big Canoe, as well as introducing senior staff and giving a tour of the property. Employees visit each amenity and department. Amenity managers and department heads give a brief introduction and “show and tell” about their work. The POA is striving to be an “Employer of Choice” and cultivating tenured employees. (Photo by Kim Cooper)
