Greetings Friends of Les Cheneaux:
 
The limited space a letter provides does not allow me to update you on all of the good things happening in our community, many of which are aimed at economic growth. Thanks to people like you who have contributed to the Community Foundation, we have been able to direct funds to many of these ideas which we trust will eventually bear fruit to keep the area economically healthy. Improving our local economy is a strong priority for the community and thereby, the Community Foundation, so we have targeted a high percentage of the funds you provided toward economic development.  
 
Having been on the Community Foundation Board for many years since its inception in 1997, I’ve received numerous phone calls pledging support for various projects, most of them enhancing the area in one way or another. One such call came last winter when a donor called to say that a major donation was in the works if we could build two, side by side tennis courts.  After considerable negotiations and work by many people, and additional contributions from the Township and the Community Foundation, those two tennis courts were just paved at the Snows Heritage Park. The final coating and painting will take place next spring. It all happened because a donor stepped forward and said, “Let’s do it now!”  
 
Again this year the Foundation Board is pleased to coordinate the Annual Ask campaign offering an opportunity for all those who care about the Les Cheneaux Area to invest in its future. Donors have the opportunity to direct their support to several areas of their choice. Each and every year we have seen our Annual Ask grow in both participants and in dollars collected so please, lets keep the momentum rolling by making a contribution this year, remember that every little bit helps. Your participation in this Annual Ask is vital to keeping our non-profits functioning in the manner we have come to expect and enjoy.
 
Thank you again for your investment in the Les Cheneaux Community.
 
With much appreciation,
