The Lighthouse Quilt Guild was formed in 1994, by women who gathered together, to quilt. The Guild now boasts over 120 members. The Guild is a non-profit organization that participates in many charities, including the Lake Shore Pregnancy Center, Ottawa County Health Departments, Habitat for Humanity and Quits of Valor. They meet every 2nd Monday of the month at 6:30pm, at Church of the Dunes.
