The Mining Journal

The Marquette West Rotary Foundation recently awarded $20,000 to 29 agencies that support youths and the elderly in Marquette County. The grants were made possible by proceeds from the annual Seafood Fest, which the West Rotary Club sponsors. In upper left photo, shown at the presentation are, from left: Rosemary Smith, Rotary Club president-elect; Clara Churchill and Rilee Waller, representing the Posse 4-H Club, which will use the grant to purchase timing equipment for equine events; and Rotary President Jamie Tomczyk. In upper right photo, Big Brothers & Big Sisters representatives Jane Letts, left, and Senja Wahlman receive a grant from Smith to support the Lunch Buddies Programs in Marquette Area Public Schools. In photo at left, Tomczyk and Smith present a check to Dennis Whitley of 8-18 Media, which will use the grant to cover the costs of students to attend political conventions. In lower right photo, Tomczyk presents a chack to Priscilla Tasson of Cancer Care of Marquette County, which will use the funds to assist cancer patients with the funding of medication, treatments, transportation and other needs not covered by insurance or Medicare. In lower right photo, Alger-Marquette Community Action Board Meals on Wheels representatives Brenda Mattson, left, and Lori Stephen-Brown receive a check from Tomczyk. AMCAB will use the funds to help cover the cost of meal deliveries to needy seniors in the Marquette area. This year's Seafood Fest is set for Aug. 24-25 at Mattson Lower Harbor Park in Marquette.
