Fowler Center’s Fishing Fundraiser

The Fowler Center in Mayville, Michigan has provided year-round camping and outdoor learning experiences for children and adults with developmental disabilities and special needs since 1957. This includes people with mental and physical challenges, autism, traumatic brain injuries, and sensory and communication challenges. The Fowler Center serves thousands each year and its goal is to offer a safe and comfortable environment so campers leave with memories of an enjoyable away-from-home experience, as well as new-found self-esteem, friendships, and pride.

Behold the New Face of Fishing Fury

If you haven’t noticed, or maybe this is your first time visiting, we’ve made some major changes to the site recently. We’ve deployed an entirely new theme for the main site designed to responsively adapt to different screen sizes. That means the website should look just as great on your tablets and phones as it does your desktop.

Fishing Fury

We’ve still got a few more bell and whistles to unveil, but first we’re working hard to fix some of our old content so that it looks better under the new format. It’s not an easy task considering we have over 8 years worth of content, but in some ways it’s enjoyable to go back to those early moments in our history. I hope you won’t mind reliving some of those moments with me in some upcoming throwback style posts.

If you’re interested you can find some screenshots of what the site looked like years ago in our archives. For historical purposes I’ve also taken a quick screenshot of the previous theme.

As always if you find something that’s broken, missing, or just feel like getting in touch with us you can leave a comment below or email us at [email protected].
