Upper Peninsula Rowing club informational meeting set for summer Learn to Row lessons

MARQUETTE — The Upper Peninsula Rowing club will hold a parent informational meeting about its summer youth Learn to Row sessions next week.

The meeting will be held from 6-7 p.m. Wednesday at the U.P. Rowing clubhouse located below the observation deck at 655 S. Lakeshore Blvd.

Interested youth can join their parents or guardians to learn about the club’s summer youth program. Registration will also be available.

The program is for teenagers from 13-18 years old and held on Marquette’s lower harbor.
