Exhange Club makes donation to Marquette Tennis Association

Marquette County Exchange Club member Geno Angeli, left center, presents a $3,500 check to members of the Marquette Tennis Association, from left, Deb Cook, Joe Havican, Jim O’Donnell, Gene Aho, Joe Downs with his dog Toby, John Dahlke, Dave Campana, Eric Lincke and Dave Kadell. The association volunteered selling wristbands at this summer’s International Food Fest, which the Exchange Club sponsors annually over the Fourth of July holiday to raise funds to make grants to local organizations. The tennis association’s funds will go toward the $160,000 improvement project at the city’s Williams Park on Ohio Street. The association led the effort to raise the $40,000 community match for the project, which received a $112,000 state grant and $8,000 from the city.
