Ontonagon — Marlene Broemer has returned to the Ontonagon area from travels around the country and world. Broemer was born in Ontonagon and grew up in White Pine, graduating from the White Pine High School and Michigan State University. She received her Master’s Degree from San Francisco State and doctorate from Helsinki University where she also taught.

Broemer returned to the area and is presently teaching at Finlandia University in Hancock.

Club president Jan Wolfe said the O-WP Rotary is pleased to receive Broemer as a new member and noted her extensive work as an editor, instructor and writer will be a “great asset” to the Ontonagon group.

Marilyn Anderson, chairman of the Bell Ringing project of the Salvation Army, reported the project this year collected $1,933. Of that amount, the Ontonagon St. Nicolas Project will receive $1,740. She thanked the individual volunteers, and school groups who assisted in Ringing the Bell. “We are a small group and without the volunteers we would not be able to do this, Anderson said.

The Rotary Club also made official its commitment to plant a tree for each member. The trees will be planted at the Ontonagon Aspirus Long Term Care grounds and at the Ontonagon Township Hall.
