April Rock Star of the Month

Rockin’ the Northwoods 

Rock Star of the Month

You may think, we don’t have rock stars here in the Northwoods. Well, we respectfully disagree!

If you have been fmikeollowing along with us online, you may have heard that the Phelps Chamber is asking for YOUR vote for Rockin’ the Northwoods. It is the array of wonderful individuals that makes our community so special and we invite you to celebrate their dedication with us!


Drum roll, please…The 1st official Rock Star of the month is…

 Mary Ann “Mac” Holcomb

Mary Ann, or Mac as she is affectionately called, is a wonderful example of the difference one individual can make. An active member of the Phelps Women’s Club, Mac plays a big role in bringing us Scarecrow Fest, a fall event held downtown Phelps on the shores of North Twin Lake.

Mac is also involved with the Snowmobile Club, her church community, and sits on the board of the Phelps Museum. “Her ideas and work ethic helps the museum grow”, says a fan. In a town where each club and organization is very active, being involved with more than one is a clear demonstration of Rock Star abilities and a deep love for the community.

If you have had the good fortune of meeting Mac, you will likely recall her friendly smile and open demeanor. Her enthusiasm for Phelps is downright contagious, catchier than a well-crafted chorus.

Mac, for all that you do, the Phelps Chamber, your friends and neighbors and the Phelps community would like to say thank you for Rockin’ the Northwoods!
