Marquette County Community Resource Fair
FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC:
Join us for the third annual Marquette County Community Resource Fair “Express Style,” taking place Friday, June 4, from noon to 4 p.m. outside Lakeview Arena/YMCA of Marquette. Due to the pandemic, the fair will be offered in a drive-thru “Express Style” format.
The Feeding America West Michigan Mobile Food Truck will be there, and we’ll be handing out bags with essentials items and information about health and social services that are available to help individuals in our communities. The Marquette County Health Department will also be offering a COVID-19 vaccine clinic onsite! 200 doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. No preregistration or appointment is necessary and individuals must be age 18 or older.
Although the drive-through method is preferred, individuals without vehicles will be allowed to walk through the event, following social distancing guidelines of maintaining a six-foot distance from others. Masks are strongly encouraged.
Registration is NOT required for individuals planning to attend the event. Attendees should enter the Lakeview Arena parking lot from the Pine street entrance. The Feeding America Mobile Food Truck will be parked in front of the YMCA along Fair Avenue. Several volunteers will direct traffic toward the truck, and items will be pre-boxed and placed in trunks by volunteers. From there, traffic will flow past the resource table where items and information will be pre-bagged and also placed in your trunk. Once individuals make it through, they will leave the YMCA parking lot through the exit on Fair Avenue.
