"A very special man," Central Lake resident says of visit with President

Linda Gallagher

CENTRAL LAKE — Central Lake resident Dale Murton knew that this year's Fourth of July weekend was going to be exciting. But she had no idea how exciting it would be. 

"When we found out that President Biden was going to be touring King Orchards, where two of our grandchildren work, we decided to go up there and see if, by chance, we might be able to see him," said Murton on Monday. "We got going fairly early Saturday morning and were able to get right into the farm."

After being frisked and having her purse searched by the Secret Service, Murton was shown to the "rope line," which the public must remain behind during a presidential visit, near the u-pick strawberry patch in the Central Lake orchard, where she joined a large group of other people. 

She stood there, waiting for the arrival of the President, who toured the farm with Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and U.S. Senators Debbie Stabenow and Gary Peters, for more than two hours in the hot summer sun.
