Promoting the Benzie County Community

The Crystal Lake Community/Business Association, or CLCBA, is a group of business owners and individuals who are interested in promoting Benzie County as a fun place to visit.

This is done through the organization and execution of programs and events designed to bring people to the area and enjoy the benefits of the community.

During the summer months the CLCBA is responsible for producing a host of activities. Over the July 4th weekend members and community volunteers coordinate the Independence Day Parade through downtown Beulah, The Firecracker 5K Run and a spectacular fireworks display over Crystal Lake in Beulah.

The organization is managed by a board of directors and hold a monthly meeting the first Thursday of each month to which all are welcome to attend.

For additional information and/or a membership application, please write: Crystal Lake Community Business Association, P. O. Box 754, Beulah, MI 49617

Meetings The First Thursday of Every Month At 7:30AM

The CLCBA meets at the Hungry Tummy in Downtown Beulah, the first Thursday of every month at 7:30AM.
