Pentwater Homecoming is our favorite time of the year. There is no better way to enjoy the last few weeks of summer than spending time at the beach and taking part in the annual homecoming activities, like the sand castle contest, parade and the Cancer and Critical Care Fund Beach Volleyball Tournament!

This year’s tournament is anticipated to be the biggest thus far; with more volleyball nets and more people interested in playing, we’re expecting a huge turnout.

The tournament is free and open to all ages. There will be two brackets; one for Family Teams and another for Adult Teams (16 year or older).

Duane Vernon has a place in his heart for all Spartan fans, especially those of Mid-Michigan and Oceana County. He was thrilled when asked to be the honorary guest at the Cancer and Critical Care Fund’s first golf tournament fundraising event.

With its well-kept greens and historical white clubhouse, The Colonial Golf Course in Hart will open its arms to Mr. Spartan and all others attending the event On June 8th. Cancer and Critical Care Fund founder and CEO Patrick Fuller hopes that Duane’s enthusiasm for charitable organizations and exemplary acts of service will inspire others to make the “extra effort.”
