August 10, 2018 – Marquette Township, MI – Marquette Super One Foods Manager Mike La Vigne presented a check in the amount of $1,256.80 to Marquette Township Manager Randy Girard and Events Committee Chair Todd Noordyk this morning.
“We are extremely lucky to have Super One Foods as our local grocery store here in Marquette Township,” said Events Committee Chair Todd Noordyk. “The crew at Super One Foods is always willing to jump in and help out at community events like they did last weekend at the 9th Annual Marquette Township Community Days.”
People of all ages from Marquette Township and the surrounding area came together on August 4th at Lions Field in the township for a fun day of music, softball, and community building. Of course, our friends at Super One Foods were there grilling up burgers, brats, and hot dogs – they even brought along ice cold pop for the crowd!
Raise the Roof!
The fine folks at Super One Foods are so generous, they donated the $1,256.80 that they collected on August 4th at Community Days back to Marquette Township. Marquette Township has a special investment account for improving the township ice rink at Lions Field.
The ice rink at Lions Field is 75’x150’ and township officials wish to raise enough seed money to write grants for a nice 90’x160’ roof over the structure allowing the ice to last longer and the structure to be used for events during the summer.
Super One Manager Mike La Vigne and Meat Department Manager Pete Kolbas said they enjoyed serving hundreds of folks at Community Days. They said the music was great, but they really enjoyed the camaraderie of being the township’s local grocery store.
Thank You, Super One Foods for supporting all of the Marquette Township Catch the Vision events.
Catch the Vision in Marquette Township!
Throughout the year, Catch the Vision events include a hockey tournament during the winter, a car show in the spring, Community Days, and the Christmas Tree Lighting, where Santa Claus throws the big switch and lights the tree! The Christmas Tree Lighting is the next big event and it will take place in front of the Westwood Mall on November 27, 2018.
