The Manistique GFWC Women’s Club spent five years planning, fundraising and building the “Living Waters Memorial” fountain.
Consistently ranked as a favorite small town getaway by visitors, Manistique’s natural beauty provides the perfect backdrop for a day of antiquing and shopping. Specialty stores, charming restaurants, friendly residents, cozy taverns, the historic water tower and lighthouse, plus a full calendar of festivals, entertainment and special events, combine to make Manistique irresistible — and it’ s on the shores of beautiful Lake Michigan.
The fountain is a memorial to remem- ber and celebrate the generations of people who have developed, protected and passed on the magnificent bounty and beauty of Manistique’s resources. It is a reminder of stewardship to the Manistique community, that its resources be guarded, preserved and passed on to benefit the future generations of Manistique.
For applications for the art and crafts booths or to be a food vendor, call Manistique City Hall, (906) 341-2090.
