LABOR DAY BRIDGE to BRIDGE WALK – The T-shirt for this year’s Labor Day Bridge to Bridge Walk from Owosso to Corunna was shown Wednesday morning, July 29, at the Owosso-area Meijer by (from left): Owosso Mayor Ben Frederick, Walk Chairperson Donna Kerridge, and Meijer personnel Vicky Alvarado, Emily DeMond, Dorinda Putnam, Elda Lockwood, Penny Brantley and Judy Thayer.
The 12th annual Labor Day Walk’s registration begins at 7 a.m. in Curwood Castle Park near the Comstock Cabin. Walkers will step off at 8 a.m. from the Heritage Bridge with a cannon firing, going 3.5 miles on the James Miner Nature Trail along the Shiawassee River to the County Fair Footbridge (built about 40 years ago).
At McCurdy Park, there will be an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast at the Community Center (historically known as The Casino and recently remodeled). Breakfast will be $6 for 11 years through adults; $3 for ages 6 through 10 years; younger than age 5, free.
A shuttle back to Owosso will be provided with an Indian Trails motorcoach, about every 20 minutes, from 9 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. for $2 per person.
Pre-registration as well as Footbridge Walk T-shirts, available to purchase as of Aug. 7 in sizes small through extra-large for $5; $7 for sizes 2 and 3 extra large, can be done at: Donna’s Reflections, 210 E. McNeil (M-71), open Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, as well as Corunna City Hall, open Monday through Thursday.
Proceeds from the sales go toward upkeep of the trail, said Kerridge. For any questions, persons may contact here, (989) 277-9557. (Independent Photo/BILL CONSTINE)
