MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - The United States Coast Guard Station Marquette is opening their gates and welcoming the community into the station to meet the friendly faces of the station.
This Saturday, September 21, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., people are welcomed to ask Coast Guard members questions and see the relationship the Coast Guard has with the community and local law enforcement agencies.
"We are extremely excited to have the community come join us for a couple hours. We are opening the gate for the free event. The coolest part about all this is we have a handful of different agencies coming out,” said U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer Second Class Terry Bailey.
Twenty-one different organizations will be in attendance at the open house, including Marquette Fire Department, Michigan State Police K9 Department and park rangers.
This will be the United States Coast Guard Station Marquette’s first open house with their current crew.
Station Marquette is asking those who attend to park at Ellwood A. Mattson Lower Harbor Park or McCarty’s Cove. Keep an eye on the U.S. Coast Guard Station Marquette Facebook page for any weather delays.
