NEW 2015 Project: BURN the MORTGAGE!!


Please help us own the building by June 30!

We are raising $10,000


    –Once we own the building free and clear, we can do much needed improvements to the skatepark, finish the climbing wall, make a game field in the back and more!

Thank you for considering our improvements and projects to help the kids and the community!

YES!  The roof is RAISED!!

And you all helped!

 The entire Houghton Lake Community and more have provided the needed funds, $32,600 to make it happen.

We also want to note that the volunteer network was incredible!  Harms Roofing provided the majority of the manpower at their own cost and we highly recommend their company for your roofing and construction needs!!  Our local friends of Artesia spent hot days on the roof helping and handling the steel.

We could not have done this project without all of your help!!  We are now DRY!!!
