Love INC Float ~ We all love parades and it’s that time of the year to organize the plans to have the Love INC float in the Allegan Fair Parade. We need people who will help decorate, ride on the float, planners and someone to pull the float – our float is the trusty sturdy wagon used for just this purpose. The parade date is September 11. This year’s theme is “Where Memories Are Made”. If you would like to help Love INC in this task, please contact Barry Lucas or Char Van Beek at 269.751.2533.

We are excited to announce that we have reached the $8,000 goal we set for our water purification system! We are overjoyed and incredibly grateful for everyone who donated from their “drop in the bucket” to cups running over. It was a tall order, but our Love INC family responded in an amazing way. Thank you, each of you, so much. Because of God’s grace at work in you, you made this happen. Our next step is to engage the work to be done as soon as possible. We will let you know of the progress, and then we can all toast the new system with a tall drink of water. Love INC
