The Lakengren Lodge was rocking on February 7 with The Growlers and The Josh Garrett Band playing to a full house! It was Lakengren’s Annual Winter Bluesfest brought to you by Andrew Gaydosh & Associates. “We are so lucky to be able to get such incredible musicians playing here at Lakengren.” said Andrew Gaydosh. The local favorite, The Growlers are always a hit and The Josh Garrett Band fortunately always finds room to squeeze us in between their other gigs.
The Lakengren A&E Committee was there raffling off gift baskets and selling split the pot tickets. Big Dawgz was open and provided great food throughout the night, including Andrew’s egg and cheese sandwiches he was giving away toward the end of the night. Andrew said he was glad to see everyone shaking off those winter blues, “We have such an incredible community and it was so great to see everyone out enjoying the party.” A big thank you to all the sponsors who make this event possible every year – Andrew Gaydosh & Associates, Lakengren A&E Committee, Rob & Lisa Wagner, Erica Howard with Prime Lending, and PC Title.

Lakengren real estate expert, Andrew Gaydosh, attended the Cincinnati Boat Show again this year to promote Lake Lakengren and our community.
“Lakengren is still getting national attention from HGTV’s Lakefront Bargain Hunt. We have more and more people interested in the community and lake lifestyle Lakengren has to offer. More than 30,000 people attend the boat show every year making it the best place to promote our awesome community. With ever increasing interest in Lakengren, property values continue to rise.” said Andrew.
Andrew said the turnout this year was fantastic and he was able to connect with lots of people who were familiar with Lakengren and introduce Lakengren to thousands more. Andrew also invited everyone in the community to a Happy Hour Meet & Greet on Saturday, January 18 at Americano Burger Bar around the corner from the Duke Convention Center where the boat show was held. “It was great to see so many Lakengren friends stop by the show and say hello and it was even better hanging out with them for a drink after the event.” Andrew is already planning a bigger and better show for 2021.
