Help Buy A Lake Michigan Beach for Future Generations...

Deerlick Beach is at the end of 13th Avenue in South Haven Township.  It has been used for generations as a public beach on Lake Michigan.  A few years ago the Township discovered that they didn't own it.  The Township, Southwest Michigan Land Conservancy, and the Friends of Deerlick are actively working together to purchase Deerlick so that the public can continue to enjoy it and make memories there.  We need to raise local match for state grants that have been awarded to the Township.  There are many opportunities to help save this treasure!   For more information on Deerlick visit www.deerlickcreek.com. 
 
Option #1 - Make A Pledge!
 John Lewandowski is riding his bicycle from Maine to Florida as a fundraiser for Deerlick Creek Park.  He is paying for all expenses.  Any money donated to this fundraiser goes towards the purchase of Deerlick Creek Park (and is tax deductible).  He is in the second week of his pedal journey.  This is a great opportunity to tell your friends/children/grandchildren that you helped buy a beach on Lake Michigan.  You can download a donation form  at the SWMLC website -  www.swmlc.org/deerlick_creek.htm.   If you have any questions, please feel free to phone Maureen Lewandowski at 639-1910  or e-mail molew@comcast.net.  
 
Option #2 - Go Shopping!
 This Labor Day week-end , the Blue Eyed Girl shop in downtown South Haven will donate their profits to Deerlick -- come and shop!   
 
Option #3 - Get A Massage!
 Also Maureen Lewandowski will be giving chair massages Sunday  (August 31)  from 1:00 to 4:00 pm in front of Kerry Mark Salon in downtown South Haven -- all proceeds will be donated to Deerlick.
