Group forms to aid kids museum

MARQUETTE – The group Friends of The Children’s Museum has been formed and is seeking members. It has a simple mission of helping the Upper Peninsula Children’s Museum. As the concept is being fleshed out for the group, the plan is to meet once per quarter with extra meetings when needed.

The group will discuss ideas and work to make things possible for the thousands of families and children who visit the museum each year. Former UPCM board member Peg Schwemin of Marquette is heading up the formation of the group.
