M.A.R.S. (Marmora Area Recreation Supporters) has given the Municipality of Marmora and Lake $3,500 to fund the instalment of basketball nets in Legion Park. 

M.A.R.S. was started in 1995 as a fundraising group to finance capital recreation projects in Marmora.

Lone fundraising is done by selling of Nevada Tickets at Marmora Valu-Mart and the group would like to thank Craig Potter for that space.
