The Big Rapids Jaycees was presented with a check from TransCanada Wednesday to improve water safety on the Muskegon River.
The $4,000 check was part of a grant the Jaycees were awarded recently.
Ashley Campau with the Jaycees says they can't wait to get started to use the money that will benefit the Big Rapids area.
"This grant money means a lot to us, It means we can accomplish so many of the goals we have set for the Muskegon River Project, we really to the time to research and figure out what it is that this community needs and how to best serve it educate them on water safety," Campau said.
The Jaycees have been part of The Muskegon River Safety Project for the last decade.
