Labor Day Tridge Walk

Join the Midland Area Community Foundation and the Chippewa Nature Center on Labor Day, Monday, September 5, 2011 at 9:00 a.m. for the Annual Labor Day Tridge Walk.

In 1992, Judge Hart began the annual Tridge Walk, and led many of the early walks. Since then, walks have often been led by Midland’s mayors. As tradition dictates, this year’s event will begin at the Farmer’s Market with brief opening remarks by the Mayor, \and Foundation representatives and musical entertainment by Alice Parry. Bill Crozier and members of his band will play during the walk, and Dulcimer music by Bill Kuhlman family and friends will provide entertainment under the Lions Club Pavilion after the walk. Refreshments will also be served following the walk, and participant certificates will be awarded to all.

As an added attraction, the Midland Area Community Foundation will be celebrating the renovation of the Tridge.  This year is the 30th birthday of the Tridge.  With the renovation completed this summer, it’s a great pleasure to walk over the Tridge. The Tridge has a new railing system, electrical upgrades has been  re-stained and landscaped to prepare it for the next 30 years of enjoyment.

We invite you to participate in this fun holiday event celebrating a wonderful community asset. Chippewa Nature Center and the Midland Area Community Foundation look forward to seeing you for the annual Labor Day Tridge Walk on September 5, 2011 at 9:00 a.m.
