Rotary Club of Marquette Makes Major Contribution

More than $12,600 Donated to Marquette Area Fourth of July Committee

Marquette, February 24th, 2009: Marquette’s annual Fourth of July festivities are one step closer to being self-sufficient—thanks to members of the Rotary Club of Marquette. On Monday, February 23rd at the club’s regular meeting Rotarian Jorma Lankinen presented a check for $12,647.25 to Tom Tourville of the Marquette Area Fourth of July Committee—all proceeds from the club’s Fourth of July wristband sales efforts. Lankinen was far and away the club’s top wristband seller, garnering more than eight thousand dollars in sales himself.

MARK & WALT SAY WAY TO GO!  CONGRATULATIONS…YOU WENT AND “DONE SOMETHING GOOD” FOR MARQUETTE COUNTY!  KEEP IT UP!
