Church to perform Christmas musical

MARINETTE — The Calvary Church Assembly of God, W1498 Highway 64, Marinette, will hold its Christmas musical “Cake” Sunday at 10:30 a.m. There is no admission cost and childcare will be provided for children younger than 5 years old.

“Cake” is about a group of students who get assigned a group project over Christmas break and must become much more than just a group of kids.

Pinecrest donated to Food pantry

POWERS — This year the staff at Pinecrest Medical Care Facility donated items for the local food pantry in Hermansville to help those in the community during the Christmas season. A donation box was set out for members throughout Pinecrest to donate to the food pantry. The staff donated the items on Dec. 11 and also had a potluck.

Items are needed throughout the year at the food pantry, to help those in need.

Forestry department receives grant 

MARINETTE — The City of Marinette Forestry Department has received $1,900 in grant money sponsored through American Transmission Co., ATC. All funding has been approved through a recent ATC's Community Planting Program grant application.

ATC's planting programs allow us to improve electric reliability by educating communities about compatible planting activities that are consistent with transmission line safety and maintenance standards, while also supporting efforts to beautify communities.

In accepting this funding, the community will perform an Arbor Day planting with the Marinette High School student class. They will be installing five landscaped beds including trees and plant material along the High School's south entrance road separating the Community Recreation Center's parking lot. Trees are valuable assets to communities when planted in the proper location and tree selection.
