Markey Township Receives Grant from RCCF

The Roscommon County Community Foundation (RCCF) is pleased to announce they have awarded a $1,550.00 grant to Markey Township for new playground equipment for the Truman Gardner Park in Houghton Lake. The Roscommon County Kellogg Youth Fund ($725.00) and the Roscommon County General Fund ($825.00) have awarded the funds to support this project.

With the funds granted Markey Township was able to purchase a see saw and a back hoe digger for the park. According to Sheryl Tussey, “The goal is to restock the Truman Gardner Park with compliant, attractive playground equipment.” With the addition of the new playground equipment Markey Township is looking to encourage families with children to utilize the park.
