Friends of Sleeping Bear Dunes 2022 Annual Meeting (Update)


Thank you Volunteers!

On August 21st Friends gathered at the Empire Town Hall to hear park updates and vote for new board members (read their profiles below). It was a nice time to visit with old friends and meet new ones while enjoying ice cream graciously provided by Cherry Republic of Glen Arbor.
