Happy Birthday Nora Metz

Posted on October 21, 2009


Nora Metz is a tiny ball of fire. She just celebrated her 93rd birthday, and the whole north end of Torch Lake was over at Mar DeTar’s for the festivities. I’ve been interviewing Nora, gathering her stories, looking at her lovingly tended mementos. One day I’ll tell you a lot more about her life, which is full of surprises. This party wasn’t a surprise–there are no secrets in Torch Lake Township–but it was filled with warmth and laughter and excellent treats.
