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. The Celebration will continue with a song; birthday cake and coffee will be served. For more information call (906) 226-3571 or find them online at www.marquettehistory.org.
