In Chippewa Lake, a poker run is held on the lake each year on the Saturday of 4th of July weekend to raise the funds necessary for these projects and others. In addition, the Chippewa Lake- Mecosta Lions man a food wagon at Remus Heritage Days and the Wheatland Music Festival. Serving the area and Lionism is a community and family affair! WE SERVE
