From Upper Peninsula to Lower, Lake Michigan to Lake Huron, and everywhere in between, it is the people of Michigan who truly make it special. We work hard and play hard. Tough winters build strength, determination, and the survival instinct that allows us to keep reinventing ourselves. The one constant is the pride we have in our state and in one another. We come from all walks of life, and when we walk together there is no task we can’t tackle, no bridge we can’t build.
