About Us

 Our Mission is: We provide opportunities that encourage and enrich multigenerational relationships and further our strong legacy in the Leelanau Community. 

Located at the corner of Broadway and St. Mary’s Street in Suttons Bay, the Center hosts classes, activities, and lunches on a regular basis. It’s also available to individuals, businesses, and community groups who need a place to meet.

The Center was founded in 1988 to serve the growing senior citizen community in Leelanau County, but our focus has always been on encouraging generations to connect and learn from one another through community-based programs.


Community Potluck

Second Tuesday of Every Month (on pause until further notice)

Over the years the Friendship Community Center has been the place to go for health and wellness classes, served as an after-school drop-in center for local students, as a lunch site for senior citizens, a place to play cards and games, a site for wedding receptions and for artistic performances.

Today, the center remains focused on providing educational and recreational activities for community members throughout the Suttons-Bay Bingham area and providing space for community meetings and events. Guests from around the county and neighboring counties are always welcome.

The Center is financially supported by local community members, grant funding, and generosity from people like you!  

We encourage and invite you to visit the center
