Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – The Marquette Beautification & Restoration Committee is hosting a special event re-dedicating the Father Marquette Park in Marquette this Sunday.

Barb Kelly, Committee V.P., and Michelle Cook, Publicity Chair, joined the Sunny Morning Show today to talk about the planned ceremony.

Kelly said the effort is combination of several groups, the City of Marquette, and multiple volunteers who have worked on this project for many years.

She said the focus has been on restoration of the Father Marquette statue, making the park ADA accessible, and enhancing and maintaining the space, and it all culminates with a celebration this Sunday afternoon at 2:00 p.m. at the park.

Cook said this project has been a great example of the community working together to make Marquette an enjoyable place to live and work.

They added all are encouraged to attend and there will be a reception immediately after the ceremony on the boardwalk by the Hampton Inn on the Lake Superior shoreline.
