The Portage Lake Association

How does a Summer Concert Series, bright street-side flowers, and a stunning fireworks display sound to you?

 

What about a picture perfect Fall Festival and a pair of bright, new Onekama & Portage Lake welcome signs?

The Portage Lake Association of Onekama, Michigan made these and other projects possible in the recent past.

Our purpose is to make our community a more enjoyable place to live, work and play. We are non-political and concentrate on smaller, achievable projects to build our momentum.

Please join us in our efforts! We want you as a member. For $35 per year, you will receive newsletters to stay informed about the Onekama and Portage Lake area. Send in your membership form today via reliable US Mail or join and pay for your membership online.

If you share a desire to strengthen our community, please seek out or initiate a project that interests you. New people, fresh ideas are encouraged and we will work with you!
