Fire and rescue organizations in Marinette and Delta Counties receive a combined $300000 from the John and Melinda Besse Foundation. The Foundation, established by founders of Besse Forest Products Group, gave 13 $20000 donations to various Delta County fire departments as well as the Delta County Sheriff Department Dive Team last week. Money was also given to the Goodman Armstrong Rescue Squad in Goodman where the Besse Group owns another lumber and veneer mill.
