Beautify Marquette

To the Journal editor:

For the past 41 years, the Marquette Beautification and Restoration Committee Inc. has encouraged all residents of Marquette to participate in the Annual Spring Clean Up. Our target date this year is Saturday.

With the lingering snows, we are extending to May 10. Over 40 groups and service clubs already have been assigned to remove litter from public spaces within the city limits. We encourage everyone to rake, repair and tidy up their property. Adding flowers will really brighten up your space.

This annual event would not happen without the enthusiastic support of the City and our sponsors (Lutey’s Heritage Motors and McDonald’s). Our city continues to win awards and visitors always comment on how clean and beautiful it is.

Thank you for your cooperation over the years. It may seem like a “little thing” to do but it makes a huge difference when we work together. Won’t you help make this 41st year a resounding success?

And let’s keep it going throughout the year not just at Spring Clean Up time.
