‘W’ Rising Through the Ranks in Online Contest

The issue of the ‘W’ will be before the Marquette County Board again tonight.

The meeting will start at 6 at the marquette county courthouse.

Community Hand–UP is the non–profit group hoping to re–open the former West Branch Fitness and Community Center.

The group is making more strides in its efforts to raise money through online avenues.

The ‘W’ is making steady progress in climbing rankings in the Readers’ Digest “We Hear You America” contest.

It’s now in 15th place with more than 98,000 votes.

If you go here, registered visitors can cast as many as 10 votes a day for the organization of their choice.

The contest continues through the end of May.

The winning group will be awarded $40,000 in grant funds.
