The Friends of Crescent Beach hopes events like this weekend’s Soar on the Shore inspire residents and visitors to protect what they love. The group organizes clean-up days throughout the summer to keep the beach clean and works with city leaders to find grants to help pay for much-needed restoration work. Cathy Pabich from Friends of Crescent Beach says improvements include bringing bike racks to the area and redirecting six storm water drains away from the beach.
Friends of Crescent Beach and the city of Algoma will welcome Unique Flying Objects and the Wisconsin Kiters Club along with other enthusiasts for this Saturday’s free Soar on the Shore event, which runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Proceeds from the event go to support future beach projects.
