Pentwater Service Club Does Bang-Up Job Collecting!
For the past two years, the Service Club has been collecting funds to support Pentwater Fireworks. We collected $3,805 -- 57% more than we collected last year ($2,451), and about 30% more than in 2014 ($2,934). Our Treasurer, Harry Waller, seated on the left, has already submitted the donations to Chamber Director Eva Gregwer! Photos Courtesy of Ron Beeber

Pentwater Service Club Names the 2016 Citizen of the Year!
The Pentwater Service Club has selected Sally Ouweneel as its Citizen of the Year for 2016. “Mike Flynn and his review committee have made a terrific choice,” said Club President Ron Christians. “Sally is well known in our community. She’s served in many capacities for over 16 years. It’s great to be recognizing her many accomplishments.” Ouweneel was recognized during the Aug. 13 Homecoming Parade, and selected at the Service Club’s Citizen of the Year Dinner on September 22 at the Pentwater Yacht Club.
Said Club President, Ron Christians, “When I broke the news to Sally, she was quite reluctant to accept it because she’s such a humble person,” added Christians with a smile. “But I gave her very little choice. ‘You’re the one,’ I told her!” Ouweneel is the president of the Pentwater Women's Club. Sally has been active in Pentwater for many years quietly making Pentwater a better community and helping those in need. She is pictured here riding in the Home Coming Parade with Mike Flynn as her driver. Congratulate Sally when you next see her. Photos Courtesy of Dick Towner.

Pentwater Service Club is Picking Up!
In August, club members participated in the second of three annual clean-up sessions. Temperatures and humidity in the 80’s at 8 a.m. didn’t deter 20 Pentwater Service Club members from cleaning up two miles of U.S. 31 as part of the State of Michigan’s Adopt-A-Highway Program on July 21. The Club is among the many hundreds of businesses, civic groups and families that clean up some 6,400 miles of Michigan highways three times a year. Photos Courtesy of Ron Beeber
