McDonald’s customers, owner help raise nearly $2,000 for fair association.

PERE MARQUETTE TOWSHIP — The Ludington McDonald’s created a special drive-thru lane on Saturday, Aug. 29 and helped raise nearly $2,000 to support the Western Michigan Fair Association’s operational budget and help with efforts toward the fair’s return in 2021.

In addition to hosting the drive-thru lane, Ludington McDonald’s owner/operator Matthew Schulz donated $1,000 to the fair, which was part of the total of nearly $2,000.

“The Western Michigan Fair is an iconic part of our community here in Ludington, Mason County and all along the lakeshore and we wanted to step in and do our part in helping any effort toward returning the fair in 2021,” said Schulz, who owns 11 McDonald’s, including locations in Evart, Fremont, Grand Rapids, Hart, Ludington, Newaygo, Reed City, Whitehall and Wyoming. “Helping our neighbors, and helping in our community, is part of the fabric of who McDonald’s is and how we view our role in our own communities.”

The Western Michigan Fair Association has been working to plan for the fair’s return in 2021, receiving community support throughout the process to host the fair next year.
