Save the Tune Council to play to benefit Izaak Walton League

Back To Front Page


For nearly 30 years the “Save the Tunes Council” musical group has been entertaining local audiences with songs and stories from our regional history.

And the group has long advocated the preservation of wild spaces in the Dunes.

From 4 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 25, Save the Tunes will be performing at Bartlett’s Fish Camp--12 on the Lake, formerly the Michigan City Yacht Club--during a “Bartlett’s Gives Back” event that benefits the Izaak Walton League-Porter County Chapter.

“Izaak Walton PCC has always done similar work as the National Lakeshore in taking steps to conserve land and they offer education of the same in northwest Indiana,” said long time Tunes member, Marti Pizzini. “We’ll be playing heritage songs of the sea; a cultural experience with historical content while being entertaining at the same time.”

PCC President Gary Brown said, “This is the first time Save the Tunes will be playing outside the National Lakeshore. It is a rare treat! And Bartlett’s is right up the road from our Frame Family Little Calumet Conservation Area which is on the Porter County side of County Line Road. It is one of four properties in the county that we’ve been working to preserve for future generations. We just finished a wetland restoration there and are looking forward to welcoming visitors this spring.”

Bartlett’s will donate a percentage of diners’ food bill when they mention Izaak Walton during business hours on Feb. 27. This event helps the chapter raise funds for its conservation work and youth education in NW Indiana.

Porter County families will recognize this Ikes group for its Family Nature Night presentations in local schools and annual presence in the TSC Barnyard tent at the Porter County Fair. The Gives Back event at Fish Camp is open to the public and is family-friendly.
