Exchange Club assists Young Authors

March 17, 2014
The Mining Journal

Exchange Club of Marquette County member Jodi Thams, left, presents a $1,000 grant check to Andrea Kleinpaste, co-chair of Marquette Alger Young Authors. Each year the Young Authors organization sponsors a four-day conference at Northern Michigan University that draws about 3,000 first- through fifth-graders from 14 schools in the two county region. The students create their own book during the conference, which also includes a well-known children's author as a guest artist. The Exchange Club uses proceeds from the annual International Food Fest it sponsors over the Fourth of July holiday to make donations to about two dozen local organizations.
