UTLA holds a community potluck dinner on the second Monday of every month at the Torch Lake Township Hall. Bring a dish to pass, your favorite beverage and personal table service.
The group supports community services, including the volunteer fire department and the renovation of the Wilkinson Homestead, through energetic fundraising:
- Fireman’s Field Day on the first Saturday in August at Barnes Park in Eastport features a craft fair, a chicken dinner, and a raffle. (Note: this beloved event was discontinued last year but I hear that it may be resurrected.)
- The UTLA cookbook is available for purchase at the monthly potluck for $12.00 or by calling Patricia Roush at 599-2198.
UTLA also collected items that were placed in a time capsule in the cornerstone of the new Community Services Building. Cornerstone Committee members included Richard Hendershott (chairman), Betty Beeby, Elva Colwell, Maxine Gresla, Harold Kruse, Carol Leys, Don Leys, and Larry Tomlinson.
