PENTWATER — Are you going to the Les Bailey Memorial Band Concert this Thursday, Aug. 10 to watch the Scottville Clown​​ and Pentwater Civic bands during Pentwater Homecoming? If so, you will have several opportunities ​at the top of the Village Green ​that evening to purchase items that support several worthwhile Pentwater causes​ during the Village’s 150th anniversary year​.

The annual Pentwater Homecoming celebration is this week, Aug. 7-13.

The Pentwater Service Club is bolstering its food sales revenue that’s subsequently donated to youth and other local endeavors by offering Sesquicentennial glasses for $6 each, or $5 each for quantities of 10 or more.

The ​Pentwater ​Chamber of Commerce will offer two ways people can help pay for this year’s fireworks. First, it will have a silent auction from 7-9 p.m. Being offered is the remaining 13-by-19-inch print ​(number​ed​ ​”​150​”) from the series of 200 numbered, limited edition, signed prints of an artistic work by East Lansing artist Pete Martens. The scene shows fireworks bursting over Pentwater Channel. The winner will be announced at the conclusion of the concert. The Chamber also will sell Sesquicentennial plates for $25.

The Pentwater Lake Association will sell its “10 Wonders of Pentwater Lake: Self-Guided Tour” books for $3. The book features a numbered map identifying 10 historical places on Pentwater Lake, along with photos and explanations. Proceeds help fund the association’s efforts to monitor and treat the 500-acre lake and stay on top of the latest environmental information.

The Friends of the Pentwater-Hart Bike Trail will offer “Rolling in Pentwater” water bottles ($3, or two for $5). Proceeds will help pay for preliminary engineering studies along Wayne Road, Harrison Road and 72nd Avenue. This is necessary to determining the feasibility of the proposed 10-foot wide, 5.1 mile trail. About three-fourths of the project’s overall estimated costs are expected to be paid by several federal and state grants.
