Sherry at Bear Creek Traders and Perkins asked us to inform readers that both institutions in McHenry are temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 crisis. Please be sure to support those businesses and all others when they re-open, as they are a core foundational component of the Deep Creek Lake area.
