Long ago in an age shrouded by the fog of time, someone had an inspirational vision to help fund the development of some new bridges at Lakeshore Park with a “Buy a plank” program. For a small donation, a bridge plank was inscribed with the donors name. Today, every rider at Lakeshore still rides over these bridge planks, looking down to see familiar names – perhaps their own!
“How do I get a name on a bridge?”
It’s been close to a decade since the last name was routed into a bridge plank at Lakeshore. A lot of new riders have come onto the scene over those years and fallen in love with the park, and we’re asked from time to time if it would be possible to add a name of a husband, a wife, or other special someone in their life.
Now, we’ve got an answer for that!
Working together with the City of Novi, we’d like to announce an ongoing “Donate a Plank” program. For a donation of at least $25, we will inscribe your selected name into a blank plank on one of the bridges at Lakeshore Park. All of the proceeds will be used to improve the bike infrastructure at Lakeshore Park.
Please be sure to add “Lakeshore Plank” and up to 25 characters that you want inscribed in the “Dedication or Special Intentions” field on the donation form. That’s it!
