Wed, 27 May 2009 19:47:09 GMT — We would like to nominate Pete LaRue as an UPsider. He would not see himself as an UPsider, but we disagree. Pete is a familiar face around Marquette and is always on the move whenever help is needed.Pete has been a member of the Chocolay Township Lions Club for several years, serving in several capacities including the Adopt A Highway Project, The Easter Egg Hunt, and if you ever attended the Santa visit in Harvey, Pete was close by. This year (2009) will be his 25th year organizing and working at the Halloween Party in Harvey. Several hundred children attend and he is now seeing second generations.Pete was instrumental in organizing the Chocolay Area Business Association in 1980 and has been volunteering 24/7 since.He is a dedicated husband, (wife, Marilyn is by his side in many of these projects) father, grandfather, brother and a friend to all.
