A volunteer group in Chikaming Township, Michigan was awarded a nearly $2.5 million  grant to help expand the public property at Cherry Beach. 

The Cherry Beach Project is a group of community members whose goal is to raise enough money to purchase private property adjacent to Cherry Beach Park. They want to preserve the wooded shoreline area and keep it from ending up in the wrong hands.
