2019 Sandbar Fundraising Drive

TLPA is again at the forefront of keeping the focus on SANDBAR SAFETY at the south end of Torch Lake. The injunction won by TLPA preventing the organizers of the 2015 4th of July debacle is still in force but we must remain vigilant in providing what is needed to keep the lake and surrounding areas sanitary, clean and safe for all of us. To that end we are asking for contributions to the TLPA SANDBAR SAFETY FUND to help defray the costs of added local law enforcement, porta-Jon’s and trash receptacles placed at access sites at the south end of the lake. You can click the link below to make your donation online.  


Sandbar Safety Fund

You can also mail in your contribution to TLPA, P.O. Box 706, Bellaire MI 49615. Please make your check payable to TLPA, and be sure to write Sandbar Safety Fund on the memo line.

Thank you for your participation in keeping this beautiful lake beautiful!
