Twenty-five years ago Algoma received a boost of beauty with the Crescent Beach Boardwalk, and things are getting more normal just in time to give the boardwalk a proper celebration. On June 22nd, Friends of Crescent Beach and the public will celebrate its 25th anniversary. It will be a celebration with speakers and an ice cream social. It will also be the first chance since the pandemic began that people can listen to the Algoma Community Band, which made FOCB feel even more honored.
The original project cost six digits to complete, and FOCB Event Committee Coordinator Sarah Krouse appreciated the efforts by those who began the venture.
Krouse found it amazing that little maintenance has needed to be done in its 25 years of existence, and they also have continued to raise funds so the city can keep the boardwalk in good condition. If the anniversary party needs to be rescheduled, the built-in date is the 23rd.
