HOUGHTON LAKE – To Houghton Lake residents she was the face of the Houghton Lake Chamber of Commerce.
Linda Tuck worked with the chamber for a total of seven years going from one position to another until she was named executive director.
In December of 2014 she retired from the chamber and began the next phase of her life. Linda is still keeping busy throughout the community working part-time at Skop’s Tax Service during tax season and as an On-Call Branch Office Administrator at Edward Jones in Prudenville.
Linda is still the President of the Chamber Ambassador Club where she takes part in planning the business after hours events and ribbon-cutting ceremonies in the community.
‘As for how the community is doing, I think the people involved in the parks and events are doing a good job, I like seeing that all the townships are helping to promote each other. I would however like to see Roscommon Township actively get something going for the community.’ Said Tuck
Now that Linda and her husband, Dave, are both retired, they have time to enjoy more of their hobbies. For Linda that means more time for gardening, golf, and reading. She took up Snow Shoeing this last Winter as well. Her goals are to enjoy life, stay physically active and spend time with her grand children and family.
Last year Linda achieved her life long goal of seeing the Rolling Stones in concert Live.
‘I went with my daughter and it was absolutely phenomenal.’ Tuck said.
Linda’s future plans with her husband are to possibly get a ‘Fifth Wheel’ and travel all over the country. They have no particular place in mind yet, however they have family in many different states they hope to visit.
Regardless, Linda said she is embracing retirement.
‘My favorite part about being retired so far is the luxury of taking my time each day. I do love to sit on our deck with my cup of coffee in the morning and enjoy not having that pressure of the ‘on the go’ every day.’
