11/19/2019- Fundraising efforts for a Menominee Police Department K-9 got a huge jump-start as the City Council voted to accept a $25,000 donation from a Menominee couple. Patty and Burt Schuring announced the amount of their generous donation at Monday night’s Council meeting.
Earlier this year, the council had given the go-ahead to up a fundraising program in conjunction with the M&M Community Foundation for a K-9 unit that would be self-funding. Details of that program are still being reviewed, but the Schurings wanted to make their donation this calendar year, so the city agreed to accept the donation, with the funds restricted to use by the K-9 program.
