NEEDED: Event chairs and co-chairs for 1 day or overnight events. Chat with someone who has done events to help guide or partner with you. Or form a committee of 1-3 for 1-day events. Per new members coming to join, they tell us it is because of the activities they see on the website and Facebook is why they wish to join. Lack of activities, lack of memberships. You do not need to be on Council.
First, ask yourself what you would like to do or where you wish to go. Then explore what options are available. Maybe it is kayaking, bike outing(s), theater and dinner or just theater, wine tasting as at Dusty Cellars, Tulip Festival in Holland, Meijer’s Gardens and/or concert, Greenfield Village and/or Ford Museum, Frankenmuth. There is so much to do and see in MI so put on your “thinking cap” and provide your friends and the membership some new, fun experiences this summer.

Wanting several to host a picnic at Hawk Island Park June 23. Talk with Rich. (Beaver Island is June 28-30 and Father’s Day, June 16.)
