Generous group donates to Pentwater-Hart Trail project.

GOLDEN TOWNSHIP — The Women Who Care of Oceana County (WWC) have given an important $15,200 boost to the Pentwater-Hart Trail, which must increase its maintenance fund before applying for grant monies that are needed to finish the ambitious project.    

The group met Sept. 6 at the Golden Sands Golf Course, and chose to have each of its 152 members contribute $100 to this cause. The area WWC chapter is now eligible to seek a $5,000 matching gift from the Schulze Family Foundation.  This will add to WWC’s individual gifts from its members, bringing the total amount of support to $20,000.  

Pentwater-Hart Trail organizers seek to raise $4.2 million for the construction of a trail that links Pentwater to the northern end of the popular, 22-mile William Field Memorial Hart-Montague Trail.  For more information, visit

On the first Tuesday of March, June, September and December, the women meet for an hour, learn about three worthy causes serving county residents, and choose one that everyone – even members who can’t attend the meeting — agrees to support with $100 personal checks. Membership is open to any woman who wants to be involved in this unique effort to support Oceana causes. 

The next meeting, Dec. 6, will be via Zoom video conferencing. For more information, contact Amy LaBarge at 313.268.2086, or go to
