In 2018, Silver Creek Church requested a grant from the Community Foundation of Marquette County to host a block party. The church received $1,000 from the Youth Advisory Committee. The grant money request was to be used for quality backpacks, school supplies, and personal hygiene products which were distributed to area youth in need at the annual Silver Creek Neighborhood Block Party. A total of 514 children received backpacks and school supplies. The block party created an exciting atmosphere that provided additional fun in the form of sidewalk chalk, toys, and bubbles while families waited in line for their essential items. Thank you Silver Creek Church for ensuring that area youth have access to items needed for their education and personal development!
Members of the Ishpeming Youth Advisory Committee help pack 150 hygiene packs for the local Ishpeming & NICE Community Schools.
Amanda Matznick, Owen Morton, Levi Giroux, Spencer Giroux and Myah McNabe help make and
deliver winter hats to the local Salvation Army.
Thank you to all the sponsors and guests who attended our 2018 Annual Celebration!
This year, with the help of our attendees and Superior Watershed Partnership,
we were able to raise over $20,000 for a new K-12 Great Lakes Education Fund: The Marion VanderVeen Environmental Education Fund.
The purpose of this annual membership meeting is to hold board elections and review proposed amendments to the BYLAWS – August 2018 Amended and Restated.
