      Volunteers plant flowers along US-41

      A group of Marquette volunteers planted flowers on a nearly mile-long stretch of US-41 Saturday.

      The event, called Petunia Pandemonium, finished a job on the west side of the road that was started Friday on the east side. One volunteer says the event's rich history and the positive effect it has on the community helps to make it special.

      "It's the Marquette Beautification Committee's 36th year. It's the 26th year that flowers have been planted down here on South Front Street, and it's just the gateway to our community and it really makes the community smile every time everyone drives through here." said volunteer Jim Grundstrom.

      Grundstrom says that volunteers are always welcome to pitch in for the annual event.
