216: Lakestate Industries Presentation/Tour
Lakestate Industries The Upper Peninsula's leader in Employment and Training.
"The tour and presentation of the new Lakestate Industries facility on M-28 East was an eye opener for me. As a parent of a child with special needs, it is reassuring to know that Lakestate Industries provides services that may be needed in the future to help my son be successful in the workplace!" - NCLL Participant
The Deck Garden shown above is one of the many beautifully crafted pieces made by Lakestate employees. Please be sure to check out their website that includes a link to the Rustic Room, from which the furniture and home decor can be purchased as well as a link to their online giving page, here.
214: "The Organ Transplant Experience"
This program, held Wednesday, October 8 in the new Jamrich Hall, was very successful!
"I am still on a high from my visit to Marquette. Thank you all so very much for supporting “The Transplant Experience” presentation last Wednesday night with your ideas, planning, coordination, attendance, promotion, support, and for making yourselves available to meet Racheal and her family the next day at breakfast and in the ICU when she visited. For those who were not able to get involved or be present, Racheal is organ donor Sanaz Nezami’s double lung recipient." ~ Wendy J. Murdak, Hospital Development Specialist, UWHealth
