Cheer Club starts

Amy Bond, Marquette Mining Journal administrative assistant, puts up the Christmas tree in the Journal lobby to kick off the holidays and mark the beginning of the Cheer Club season. Unwrapped toys are accepted from the public at the Mining Journal offices in Marquette and Ishpeming, the Marquette and Ishpeming Salvation Armies, Marquette Township Hall, ACE Hardware in Gwinn and Bell Hospital in Ishpeming. The Salvation Army will pick up the toys to distribute to needy children in the area. (Journal photo by Christie Bleck)
