Thank you for your participation in Pentwater’s 89th Annual Homecoming!

On behalf of everyone at the Pentwater Chamber of Commerce, we would like to thank each person, club, business, organization, and family who contributed to the fireworks this year. It was because of your generosity Pentwater was able to have TWO successful Firework displays this year. Our firework displays are made possible by the generosity of supporters, clubs, organizations, businesses, families and more. The goal was surpassed, raising a total of $26,722.42 thus far! Not only will the tradition of July 3rd and Homecoming fireworks continue, they will be BIGGER and BETTER in the future.

The Pentwater Chamber of Commerce are particularly excited about the money collected during the parade by the Pentwater Service Club. The Pentwater Service Club generously volunteered their time and effort to collect firework donations during the Homecoming Parade. This year they collected a total of $3791.44! This passed all previous parade collections since 2014. We are grateful to their commitment to the Pentwater community and look forward to their assistance in the future. Make sure to look for them in the next Homecoming parade. The Pentwater Service Club contributes $500 of their own funds to the Pentwater Fireworks annually. For more information about the Pentwater Service Club and how to be involved go to www.serviceclub.org

Every year, Pentwater Homecoming kicks off on the second Thursday in August. This year we had more local businesses, families, and organizations participate in the parade than ever. The crowd was very encouraging and we hope to see many returning faces and newcomers to Homecoming in 2020.

The Pentwater Chamber of Commerce will continue to collect donations for the 2020 Firework Displays. Please consider donating at the office, online at www.pentwater.orgor by mail – PO Box 614, Pentwater, MI 49449. 100% contributions go towards fireworks.
