Event a success

To the Journal editor:

The Marquette Area Public Schools Education Foundation held its first annual Holiday Homecoming for the alums from Marquette Public Schools, Bishop Baraga and John D. Pierce on Dec. 26 at the Landmark Inn.

We want to thank the Landmark Inn, the Marquette County Convention and Visitors Bureau and those who participated for helping to make this event successful.

We want to report to the community that we were very pleased with this first time event. The attendees were very positive about the evening and recommend that we continue this gathering again this year.

The preliminary recommendation of the foundation board is to sponsor this event again next year. We believe this event can become an annual tradition for the community during the holiday season.

Details of time and place will be provided later in the year. If you have any suggestions or comments, please feel free to contact us at www.mapsnet.org.

Mark your calendar for Dec. 26, 2013.

Tom Baldini, president
