TowJam Music Weekend

Small Festival • Big Heart • Huge Help

Thank you everyone who attended, donated, performed,
and helped with Tow Jam™ 6.

Your generosity resulted in KAIR being able to provide an astounding 20,000 lbs. of food to the families they serve!

This event is produced by a small but dedicated crew that works throughout the year to produce this event. The Dream Team includes Carl Fish, Hans Horstik, Bev & Doug Larsen, and Eddie MacKeller.

Several local firms provided in-kind support without hesitation.

Special Thanks to Ann and W***y Bewersdorff for hosting this event. They exceed our expectations each time.

It takes everybody working hand-in-hand to pull off the Tow Jam™ Plan.


Pictures from camp store DVDs to borrow,ice,pop and basic essentials. Bathhouse and laundry facilities and our cabin rentals!

Hunkered down in our living room, in the midst of a pandemic, we got all dressed up and recorded this song for all of our fellow Michiganders and friends of Michigan. With love, Andy & Julianna ❤️

Colorful tours, Hemingway trail marker come to Kalkaska


antrimreview.net KALKASKA – The same railroad tracks that brought Ernest Hemingway to the Kalkaska Depot in 1916 will bring passengers from Kalkaska to Petoskey for the annual Northern Arrow Fall Color Tour on the second weekend of October.


TowJam Music Weekend

It was a beautiful weekend.

Through your efforts, TowJam 5 was able to provide 6,600 # of food for families in need.

This event was held in an area where 1 person in 4 is "food insecure" meaning they routinely miss meals due to their circumstances.

A huge THANK YOU to all who participated in making this event a big success!

Some of the finest people on this planet attended, performed, donated, assembled, contributed, cooked, cleaned, volunteered, disassembled, loaded out, and supported in their own way.

Cathy Somes of KAIR writes: "It is truly wonderful to experience the love of all the kind-hearted people giving of themselves to help others in our community at Tow Jam every year."

The list is long, and they are the kind of people who would just shrug it off and say they wish they could have done more.

Ann and W***y Bewersdorf did an excellent job hosting this event on short notice and not knowing what to expect. (other than being told they were going to meet some very nice people)

We got by with a little help from our friends.


Happy fourth ya'll


Horseshoe pits will be completed for the holiday!!!

[06/10/19]   Also 20% off Father's and Daughters!!
