What kind of stories will be on the show?

A few examples of Harbor Lights Stories:

  • The Boys and Girls Club of Benton Harbor and the First Tee golf program where youth receive instructions and mentoring from local adult volunteers; They golf at the prestigious Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf course at Harbor Shore; many of the teens from this program are employed at the golf club and are often called to play with adult members of the club; teens have joined golf teams and have been awarded in regional and national tournaments, a 15 year old African American girl was the first person to get a hole in one on this challenging course.

  • HLTV will also inform the community on the numerous Health care services, prevention programs, tips on general wellness and importance of good health.
  • Enjoy the miles of sugary sand beaches, water sports, excellent boating and fishing, and magnificent sunsets along Southwestern Michigan’s pristine coastline.
  • Travel along Southwest Michigan’s fruit growing region with miles of orchards, U pick farms, and old fashioned roadside stands where you are still invited to simply “leave your money in the box” after you’ve chosen your farm fresh produce.
  • Discover and enjoy the Wine Country in the gently rolling southwestern Michigan hills which is one of the best wine producing climates in North America.
  • Harbor Lights will also highlight the cultural, family oriented activities, various sports and natural year around beauty found throughout Southwestern Michigan.
