Save our South Channel Lights on Algonac Boardwalk

Start date: September 3, 2022
End date: September 4, 2022

Save our South Channel Lights group will be on the boardwalk during the Algonac Art Fair – Saturday and Sunday, September 3 & 4.

Lots of work is underway and more needs to be done to repair our landmark Lights after the last few year’s of record high water and bird infestation.  Don’t forget to stop by and say hi and help out if at all possible.   Buy a shirt or one of their new decorative anchors for your home to raise funds.
