Mackinac Bridge Walk

Governor Granholm walks with favorite hometown paper

September 10, 2009 // 0 Comments

This past weekend the Squire traveled to Mackinac City, Michigan to participate in the 52nd annual Labor Day Big Mac Bridge Walk. Just after the 7 a.m. start of the walk, Squire reporters Cliff and Nancy Hill hooked up with avid Squire reader Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm. Ever gracious and not missing a step, the “Guv” accepted a copy of a Squire featuring front page coverage of the 50th anniversary walk on Labor Day 2007. This being our eighth consecutive Labor Day Bridge Walk, your reporters established a new personal best time for the five-mile crossing at one hour and five minutes. (Not bad, huh?) Upon crossing the finish line, each and every one of the day’s 49,000 participants was awarded a numbered certificate signifying that on this day they had “Walked across the World’s Greatest Bridge. Our particular certificates were numbered 375 and 376. We won’t tell you which of us crossed the finish line first.
