Press Release – Michigan Flywheelers Museum Fundraiser

November 2, 2011

From a Michigan Flywheelers Museum press release…

SOUTH HAVEN – Supporters and friends of the Michigan Flywheelers Museum are invited to a Pasta Buffet fundraiser at Big Boy Restaurant on Sunday, Nov. 13.

Held from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., the buffet will feature a wide array of pasta dishes as well as soups and salads. Cost is $9.95 per person. Fifty percent of the proceeds will be earmarked for the museum’s Challenge Grant.

The museum has been working towards raising $50,000 by the end of the year for a matching grant from the Samaratan Foundation in Benton Harbor. The foundation has offered to double the money raised for an addition to the 130 year old Stephenson Barn that was moved to the museum in 2006. Since then, museum members have been renovating the structure turning it into a place for educational classes and workshops as well as a meeting place.

The next step in the renovation is the addition of bathrooms and a warming kitchen.   

The Michigan Flywheelers Museum is a 501 c3 organization dedicated to the preservation of antique farm equipment. It is located on 80 acres 2.3 miles east of South Haven. It hosts one of the largest antique engine and tractors shows in the state every September.

To participate in the fundraiser, customers must purchase the Pasta Buffet.

Big Boy Restaurant is located east of South Haven next to I-196. For more information, call the museum at 269-639-2010 or Facebook.
