Lake Michigan Camp & Retreat Center

Many thanks to the mission workgroup from St. Matthew UMC from Livonia. These wonderful folks blessed us with a weekend full of projects including building a new fire pit at our Welcome Center, repairing items in the Retreat Center, Welcome Center and on our south beach stairway. They helped to winterize our Dining Hall, worked in one of our new cabins, spread the gravel for our new staff cabin and fed us! Wow!!!

Thank you: Joe Black, Karen & Gary Burdick, Maggie & Drew Doty, Jennifer Day-Dufek, John Everett, Barb & Bill Harlow, Dick Horie, Fabian Lanzy, Bill Marken
