The generosity of the people of Marshall County is a great reflection on the wonderful community we all live in.” Mersh added, “We collect a record amount of money this year and that wouldn’t be possible if it weren’t for the generosity of all those who gave to the Knights who gave of their time to help the Marshall-Starke Development Center.”
