The Whitehall Community Gazebo is a great recent addition to the Whitehall area. It only opened last July, but is getting its fair share of use! The dream of local Becky Nordlund, whose family owns the landmark store Pitkin Rexall Drug & Shoppe, who just wanted a place for the community to come together. The beautiful 24' gazebo is located in Goodrich Park with great views over White Lake. It is the perfect spot for family picnics, weddings, and small concerts. The gazebo has already been host to several weddings and engagements and the “Summer Ain't Over Yet” concert series hosted by Harbor Light Credit Union last September. Shortly after Nordlund presented the idea to the City of Whitehall, two Whitehall High School seniors, Alex Mark and Taylor Boyd, chose the construction of the gazebo as their Senior Project. Finally, a collaboration started between Ms. Nordlund, the seniors, the Montague-Whitehall Rotary Club, and the city. The $35,000 gazebo was funded with $10,000 donations by Nordlund and the Montague-Whitehall Rotary Club, with the remaining funds coming from the board of the city's Tax Increment Funding Authority.Winberg Construction was the general contractor for the project and built the gazebo from maintenance-free materials, energy efficient LED lighting, and had election outlets for sound systems. There is a fundraiser ongoing to build a sidewalk that will lead up to the gazebo. Any person, organization, or business can donate and if they donate $100 their name or company logo will be placed on a 5' x 5' section of the sidewalk. The Whitehall Community Gazebo is the best place in town to just get together with all of the family and enjoy beautiful Goodrich park and White Lake.
