We walked the Mighty Mac with a mighty big group
Siblings Elsie Bush and Mike Hook of Hastings enjoy walking across the Mackinac Bridge. (Photo provided.)
Labor Day was a great day for a walk, so my sister, Elsie Bush, and I joined thousands of people for the annual Mackinac Bridge Walk. Weather conditions were great for the five-mile trek. It's the fourth time we've taken this walk – but it's the 62nd time it has taken place.
We saw Gov. Gretchen Whitmer walking, too, so I can report that the governor took a walk with Hastings residents Elsie Bush and Mike Hook on Sept. 2, 2019.
The last time we walked the bridge was 25 years ago. I'm 65 and just retired from Meijer Inc. in Cascade. My sister is 71. I just wanted to share this photo to mark the day we took a walk with the governor – and 20,000 to 30,000 other people!
