Tonight marks the first "Marquette Moment" - at 6:30 PM each night, the City Commission is encouraging you to step outside your front door and take a moment to visually check in on your neighbors - wave, say hi, ask them how they're doing, etc. while continuing to comply with social distancing. We think this is a great way to safely look out for one another and decrease the sense of social isolation and loneliness that weeks of sheltering at home can foster in many of us (myself included). Please participate, share on social media, and let your friends and neighbors know about the Marquette Moment at 6:30 PM each night! ... See MoreSee Less
