General Community Announcements
The Northwoods Conservancy is mounting a drive to pay down the mortgage on its Gratiot River, Seven Mile Point and related properties it has purchased to keep open for public use. The goal is to have 50,000 people make a $10.00 donation by January 9th through the CrowdRise Holiday Challenge. To participate, visit the website SaveThisBeach.org. You can link from there to the CrowdRise site, make your contribution, and then send a request for help to friends on your social networks. If the Conservancy finished among the top fundraisers, there is a cash bonus from CrowdRise.
