Memorial Contributions may be made to: Wings Home, 330 Linn St., Allegan, MI 49010; and/or: Tom Drozd Memorial Fund - A longtime dream of Tom and Phyllis Drozd has been to construct an athletic field house for students and community members to use and enjoy for sports and activities year round. Their dream will come true only weeks after Tom's passing when the Allegan Athletic Field House opens in March. In support of their dream, the Drozd family is asking that memorial gifts be made to the "Allegan Public Schools - Tom Drozd Memorial Fund." Donations to the fund will be used to provide a welcoming entrance to the new facility and also serve as a fitting tribute to Tom's commitment to the Allegan community. Arrangements are being made by Gorden Funeral Residence.
