Every season yields a special view of Pine Lake from the two acres of property preserved by Unity Foundation of La Porte County: from bright fall foliage to thick winter ice, to the shimmering swirl of summer boats.
Unity Foundation and many generous donors are keeping a two acre vista open for all to see one of La Porte’s greatest treasures – Pine Lake.
The Love Our Lakes Campaign aims to: pay for the land at 1010 Pine Lake Avenue; get it ready for public use; and give it to the community with a supporting endowment. This summer, an artist rendering was released to show the potential visual impact of the project on the now-vacant plot.
To-date, more than $845,000 has been raised toward a $1.2 million goal, with invaluable support from a development committee headed by Susan Aaron, and including Unity board members Michele Thompson, Marti Swanson, Kim Sauers and Liz Bernel.
