A MESSAGE FROM THE LAKE GEORGE BOOSTERS BOARD
When you think of the Lake George Boosters Club you probably recall delicious meals, golf outings, Euchre, trap shooting or casino trips, but that is only part of what we do. Did you know we provide annual scholarships to 3 local graduates and provide support to the Senior Center and children’s activities? We also provide holiday food baskets for needy neighbors. We have a long history of contributing to others in our community and now we are asking for your help.
We’ve been fund-raising for years to replace our building, but have realized this will never be possible with today’s building costs. Instead of a new building, we are doing major renovations to our existing building which will result in a more attractive and accessible facility for the community to enjoy. The funds are in the bank for the planned addition and renovations, but we are seeking donations from members, friends and neighbors to offset those additional costs which are part of a major project like this. The Health Department will not let us reopen until we have installed an Ansel Fire Suppression System, which is an expensive and complex item not included in our original estimate. We need your support and hope that we can count on your financial assistance. If you would like to support this endeavor, please complete the form below and return it with your donation to: Lake George Boosters, P.O. Box 265, Lake George, MI 48633.
Construction will begin in mid-May so there will be no breakfasts or dinners for the duration of the construction project. We look forward to welcoming all of you to our “new and improved” facility later this summer. Watch for signs regarding our Grand Re-Opening.
A list of donors will be prominently displayed once renovations are complete.
We thank you in advance for whatever contribution you can make to further this project.
Yes, I’d like to support the Lake George Boosters building project.
Donation: ____ $50 Patron____ $100 Silver
____ $75 Bronze____$200 Gold
All contributors’ names will be prominently displayed in our renovated facility.
