April 2021 Update
Join us TOMORROW (April 17th) for Adopt a Highway clean-up. We will meet at the office at 9am and then head out to our section of M-40 from M-89 south 2.5 miles. The first clean-up in the Spring is a big one, so we hope to see you there!
Check out our “new look” for the Allegan County Fair Booth, which can be used for other events as well! We expect there will be some festivals this summer, as people get vaccinated and life begins to return to something more normal. We encourage you to visit our funding page and pitch in a few dollars! The word cloud below will be our side wall (10 feet wide by 8 feet tall) at the end of the building. Please send us suggestions for additional words we can add to fill in our cloud!
These panels are each 10 feet wide by 8 feet tall and will go across the back of our Fair Booth.
Coming in early May!!
Signs are $10 each. We will have them in our office. Whitmer signs have same message on both sides.
Our focus this year will be on identifying candidates to run for office and expanding our membership and volunteer forces to support them in their campaigns. Links to sign up at MDP April webinars. Let’s take advantage of 2021 and prepare ourselves for a successful 2022!

June 5th! We are planning an in-person event at Jaycees Park in Allegan. Our discussion will be around Community Health and we hope you can join us! More details coming soon!
Our picnic is currently scheduled for July 24th, but we are checking to see if we can change it to July 17th, which is the standard 6th District – 3rd Saturday meeting date. Stay tuned and we will let you know the final answer!
August 17th will be our annual potluck at Pickle Street School. That gives you lots of time to get vaccinated!
