County Candidate Forum
The Service Club sponsored a "Meet the Candidate" event for Pentwater residents. The event was attended by 16 of the 19 candidates competing in the five contested county races -- District One Commissioner, Drain Commissioner, Road Commissioner, Sheriff, and Treasurer. Each candidate had five minutes to speak about personal qualifications and the major issue to be faced. Most stayed afterwards to chat informally with voters. One candidate said this event in Pentwater was better attended than other similar events that have been held throughout the county to date.

Pentwater Scouts Reach “FINAL FOUR” Goal
Triggered by the Service Club, and facilitated by the Community Foundation for Oceana County (CFOC), Troop 1145 raised the final $4,000 needed by March 1 so everyone slated to take a rugged, 12-day trek at the Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico this summer can do so.
“We raised $11,000 the past two years doing various service projects,” said Troop 1145 Scoutmaster Rick Quinn. “But two weeks ago, we were $4,000 short of the funds needed to send every Scout and mentor in our contingent." “When the Service Club heard about this," said President, Ron Christians. "Our members were quick to okay $1,000 of our funds for a challenge grant to attract the remaining dollars needed.”
“I can’t express how much we appreciate everything the Service Club and the community have done for us," said Scoutmaster Quinn! "Thanks to the community for chipping-in and making a great place even better!"
