Marquette Lions Club assists MARESA

Ruth Barry of the Marquette/Alger Intermediate School District receives a $1,395 check from Joe Baczkowski of the Marquette Lions Club. The funds were presented on behalf of the Lions of the Upper Peninsula’s District 10 Speech and Hearing Committee. The money will be used to purchase a “Pictures In a Flash” device that produces high quality tactile graphics using heat sensitive capsule paper. Diagrams, maps, charts and other visuals swell on the paper to give a raised image similar to Braille so that visually impaired students can feel and better understand and interpret the graphic.
