A MONDAY AND A RETURN TO ACTIVITY IN TOWN!

It’s Monday morning and the students are back at good ol’ Northern Michigan University.  Suddenly, there’s several thousand more people in our sleepy little burg and that can be a double-edged sword!  It’s great to have the energy, enthusiasm, interaction and commerce that comes from new people and returning people in town, but it also increases the traffic, both vehicular and pedestrian, that we need to be aware of as we travel through Marquette and the surrounding communities.  And of course, don’t forget about the bikers and the skateboarders!  Watch out as you are driving about!

MAIN STREET MONDAY SEEMED TO STUMP A FEW!

Congratulations to Mike M., who was the winner today of Classic Cartoon Trivia on Main Street Monday.  He picked up 2-14″ three-topping pizzas for knowing the answer for the contest today was “SuperFriends”!  It seemed like we stumped quite a few of you today, but it’s good to throw you guys a challenge every now and then.  We’ll do it again next week thanks to Main Street Pizza!

FAREWELL TO THEE!

That’s it  for a fun-filled Monday!  Welcome back NMU…enjoy your time here in Marquette County.  It’s a pretty good time and worth the effort!

See Ya!
