My Marinette Menominee has become a movement. We have joined together, Marinette, Wisconsin, and Menominee, Michigan, because we are stronger together. Our mission is to strengthen and support small businesses in our community by working together to build a more vibrant community.
The Jingle supports local efforts in Small Business Revolution Push!
Small Business Saturday is coming soon. Stop by here at Main Street Antique Mall to see the Grand Prize - Treasure Chest with 32 different prizes from our local businesses in Marinette, Menominee, and Peshtigo.
Year 1: Welcome Walleye 2017
Our first summer we placed 100 metal walleye sculptures into the community.Each was painted by a local artist and the project was generously supported by local businesses.
Year 2: Trout 'n About 2018
In our second summer, we placed 250 metal trout sculptures in the area. Again, each fish was uniquely painted by local artists and funded by local businesses.We printed and sold "Welcome Walleye" t-shirts at our local Jack's grocery and M & M chamber.Most importantly, Marinette Farm and Garden spearheaded a program to put 28 huge flower pots into the city of Marinette. These pots were painted by local artists and groups, were planted with annual flowers, and held a large metal walleye sculpture. The city took great care of these gardens, and it was a delightful addition to the community.
Year 3: Perch Party 2019
This summer, we look forward to placing as many perch sculptures as possible.We have car decals ready to go .Our biggest effort will be 5' long mahogany walleye benches. These benches are more sculpture than bench, but who says form needs to follow function?
