Lake Shannon is NOT heated

Yes, that’s hard ice on one side of Parkwood Dr and an open lake on the other!

Don’t forget to visit our Free Massage booth at the finish line of the 4/28 5k run/walk . All tips go to Aiden! Still supporting

Why is the lake always warmer than other local waters !

Small world, again.

Today I had the pleasure of dining at my mothers retirement center NW of Detroit. Another woman seated at the table was telling us of the places she’s lived over the years. She mentioned “a place called Lake Shannon” as if no one had ever heard of such a location. She was shocked to know that we’d moved there before most anything was built … even the roads to the back side of the lake ! It had been 25 years since she lived here and we helped her remember streets and homes. You could see mental lights of delight appear as we chatted with this wonderful elderly retiree.

Flint Eastside Mission

Thank you for the incoming donations of cash, clothing, & toiletries in response to the HOTLINE emailing we sent out.


My wife & I volunteer each Sunday at the Flint Eastside Mission working with: the music, young children, and the serving of meals to everyone who comes.

This is in an all but forgot area of our community about one block where a woman was just killed and left to be run over several times. Boarded up & burned out houses out-number occupied ones. Yards are unkept. Adults that come in often live in an empty house of course without heat or water, only a blanket. Virtually none even have transportation so those that don’t walk to the mission we pick up and drop off in vans so old & in such poor condition that few of us lake residents would ride in them. Most children have ill fitting clothing, oft times worn right through.

Anything you feel you can pass along would be appreciated for the mission…from an old vehicle, lawn mower, or other tool to basics such as clothing or food and basic living toiletries such as soap & towels. The people have virtually nothing, as does the facility. We can also use items for the children classroom, old chairs, teaching tools, crayons, markers,… items to give as prizes, etc.

Any items can be dropped off at our house on Parkwood, office, or at the mission directly on Flints Eastside near Davison & Franklin between Dort & 475.

A receipt can be provided from the mission.

Thank you & Merry Christmas,
The Anibals

ps. If you’re musical and available Sunday afternoons, we’ll sign you up too !
Always need volunteers of any kind.
