      Cliffs/ Eagle Mine fund hands out over $1 Million in Grants

      The Cliffs/Eagle Mine Marquette County Community Fund handed out over $1 million to local organizations Wednesday.

      Representatives gathered at the Cliffs Cottage in Ishpeming to receive the grants. The largest grants given out were $200,000 to the U. P. Children's Museum and the Upper Peninsula Substance Enforcement Team and $150,000 to the Forsyth Township Public Library.

      This was the second round of grant approvals for the fund which has given out more than $2.2 million since it was created in 2012.
