The Friends of the Bark Point Boat Ramp are looking for donations to make needed improvements. One such improvement is the construction of a new safer walkway. Plus, we are looking to improve the boat ramp, to keep sand from filling it in every year. Any monies donated will go into a fund for the Bark Point Boat Landing, for present and future projects.
If you would like to contribute, we invite you to join us as a team in supporting the continued use of the Bark Point Landing. Please make your check payable to the Town of Clover, in the memo area please note "Bark Point Boat Landing." Mail your contribution to the Town of Clover, P.O. Box 94, Herbster, WI 54844.
You can look on this website for one of the improvement projects taking place.
Your contribution is tax deductible. If you have any questions, you can contact us at (715) 774-3780, or one of the Boat Landing Committee members: Mark Pope, Dale Paulson, Jim Reha and Stan Samuels.

The remainder of the walkway was installed yesterday. Randy Schultz came with his machine to help Jim Reha, Will Wiethoff and Tick Whytsell were all there to help.
Next project is to fix the steps and handrail down to the walkway. Dale Paulson is going to clear a tree that blew over, check the dock over and move the emergency fire sign to a better location.
Jim Reha donated the fence posts and Les Luoma donated the beautiful old hemp rope to block off people parking or driving toward the beach. Tim Herstein, Erik Felt and Will Wiethoff installed the posts and rope.

Project is coming along nicely!
Many thanks to Gail Reha and Dale Paulson who hand shoveled the sand off of the dock so that we can all walk on it again and enjoy it! What a labor of love.
