Event Details

Join us on December 14, 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm at the Marquette Regional History Center as we celebrate the Upper Peninsula’s 183rd birthday. On December 14, 1836 during the “Frostbitten Convention” the State of Michigan accepted ¾ of the U.P. in exchange for the Toledo Strip. Soon after Michigan was admitted to the Union as the 26th state. State Representative Sarah Cambensy and Mark Ruge, native of Menominee Michigan and former chief of staff to Congressman Bob Davis, will speak at 1:30 pm about the “Frostbitten Convention” and the details of this important decision for the State of Michigan. We will celebrate with a song and serve birthday cake and coffee. For more information call 906.226.3571 or go online
