Lions say thanks for support from area
To the Journal editor:
(The recent) response to the can & bottle drive at Marquette Lions Lakeside Park was overwhelming and greatly appreciated.
Thank you so much for the generous donations of recyclables, cash donations, for the many Lions members, their spouses & friends who donated their time & vehicles, and the very thoughtful gentleman bringing the perfectly timed pizza. We also want to thank The Mining Journal, WJMN TV3, WLUC TV6, & RRN for getting the word out, the city parks department for the use of the area and a BIG thank you to Lakeshore Park of Marquette for the use of the storage room.
The beneficiary of this project will be The Lions of Michigan SD10 Childhood Cancer Initiative and is currently hoping that families with children battling cancer will contact Lion Club member Christine Smith through www.district10lions.org to get help with expenses.
