Linda Land

From the time I was born, my family vacationed on Webster Lake. I still remember thinking that our week at the lake would never get here.
Around 1980 my family was given the opportunity to rent one of Culver’s Cottages for the season.  A few years later, we had the opportunity to  purchase three of the cottages and that
was the beginning of Lake~Land Cottages.  Soon after we made a permanent move from Bluffton to the lake with the purchase of two more cottages making one of them a year around home.
For over 35 years,  Lake~Land Cottages has been renting cottages during the summer months, mostly to the same families year after year.  It is always a pleasure to see the familiar faces
coming back to Webster Lake to vacation each summer.

Chris Trowbridge

I am a father of 4 children, 2 grown and 2 in the Wawasee School system that we call home, and am married for 12 years now to my beautiful wife Shannon.  I am a volunteer firefighter in North Webster since 2017.  These are the things I’m most proud of and the things that define me most closely.

I am also a business owner in North Webster of Maverick Promotions Inc., where we do custom products to represent businesses and teams around the country.  In this capacity I joined the North Webster Chamber of Commerce to represent the community that we live in and love.  I believe that North Webster is positioned perfectly to cater to the tourist crowd in the summers and to be a local resource to all of the families that live in this area year round.  Our community has much to offer and I hope to serve the area and help grow our community through local events and efforts to beautify and enhance the appeal of our town.

I welcome any input that our neighbors have to improve what our chamber does – stop in and say hi sometime and tell me how I can help!
Sincerely,  Chris
