This Christmas we started a new feature called The Holiday Herald, where anyone would get the chance to submit an anonymous (or not so anonymous) message for all of our readers to see.
We want to thank everyone for participating! Half of the proceeds we’ve received from this will be donated to the Marquette Women’s Center.
Merry Christmas to you and yours, from the folks at Word on the Street.

In our world today when we see so much hate in the world, I am glad I can say that Marquette is not like that – that we care about our fellow citizens. It is a community I am proud to call home. Merry Christmas and happy holidays….
