An annual poker run is held on Great East Lake in honor of Mary Allen, who lost her battle to cancer December 1, 2012. She was a long time resident of the lake and spent many a summer skiing and swimming in this beautiful place. The proceeds go to Dana Farber Cancer Institute in her honor. Cancer has touched just about all of our lives in some way, including Dan's, who battled hodgkin's lymphoma just a couple short years ago. This is a very special day and a great event to wrap up the summer for us all. There are lots of boats, smiles, food and just plain fun had by all. An annual tradition that draws people from neighboring lakes. People start planning next year's run the next day!
