To honor the memory
of Herb and Charlotte Read for their lifelong commitment to protecting the
Indiana Dunes and Lake Michigan, Dunes Action is currently raising funds and
collecting plastic bottle caps to be turned into a memorial bench and plaque
at Porter Beach.
Department collects the caps to be recycled into benches. The Read bench
will be located at Porter Beach for public use. Any plastic caps from milk,
soda, detergent, medicine bottles, etc., can be taken to the Porter Parks
Department Office, located in Hawthorne Park.
Each bench requires
about 400 lbs. of plastic caps, which would have been added to the trash if
not recycled. Please mark the bags with “For Read Bench.” Dunes Action
believes the Read’s would approve of this lesson in reuse and recycling.
in donating cash for the bench and plaque may send a check to: Dunes Action,
