2013 League Convention - Detroit

2013 Community Award Finalist - St. Joseph - Silver Beach Development
For many decades vacant property and antiquated industrial buildings dotted the city's lakefront. In 2006, the Silver Beach Committee was formed to acquire the property and create a "WOW" factor. On January 2, 2010, after seven years of planning and fundraising, the community christened Silver Beach which includes the Silver Beach Carousel, the Curious Kids' Discovery Zone, and Michigan's largest interactive water fountain. Thanks to the generosity of the community, Whirlpool, and several local families, over $8,200,000 was raised to privately fund the project. Today, Silver Beach Center is a mecca for tourists and locals who want to create memories.
