Meet the Physician Wednesday
MARQUETTE — At noon Wednesday, Marquette Stroke Coordinator Erica O’Brien, will present “Stroke Strikes Fast and So Should You” in this month’s Meet the Physician session in the Peter White Public Library’s Shiras Room on the upper level.
Stroke is the fifth-leading cause of death and disability in the United States. It occurs when the blood flow to the brain is interrupted through a blood clot or an artery bursting, leading to oxygen deprivation. Stroke strikes fast, so it is important to be able to recognize the warning signs and to know what to do about them.
Bring a sack lunch as well as any questions. There is no admission fee to attend. For more information, visit the library’s website at www.pwpl.info or call 906-226-4318.

Community Crop Swap Sept. 14
MARQUETTE — All gardeners are invited to Marquette’s first-ever Community Crop Swap to be held at Graveraet Elementary School at 2:30 p.m. Sept. 14.
The event is sponsored by Transition Marquette, MQT Growth and the Queen City Seed Library.
The Community Crop Swap is for gardeners who have an overabundance of garden produce and are interested in “swapping” with others who also have garden surplus. Participants are asked to bring their excess produce in cardboard boxes (labeled), along with empty baskets or bags to collect produce that others have brought.
No pesticides or GMOs please.
“We think Graveraet is an ideal location for an event like this.” said Michael Riesterer, of Transition Marquette in a news release. “We have an annual plant swap at Graveraet in the spring, so it makes sense to follow that up with a crop swap in late summer.”
Miriah Redmond of MQT Growth added, “We’ll also be inviting everyone to tour the hoop house at Graveraet Elementary School to see what students are growing and how various permaculture principles are being applied.”
Other garden-related projects will also be on display during the Crop Swap. Donations will be accepted to help support the Graveraet hoop house. All surplus produce will be donated to the Warming Center in Marquette.
