Let's focus the world's attention on Michigan this month with positive news!
On January 26, 1837, President Jackson signed a bill, officially making Michigan the nation's 26th state. That makes January 26th, 2012, our 175th anniversary. It also gives us a great excuse to focus the rest of the nation's attention on us and tout the many fantastic products and sights our beautiful state has to offer.
Here are more details on a variety of ways for you and/or your business to participate:
to add a January tasting, product demonstration, or other public event designed to celebrate Michigan's 175th.
to view live events happening around the state in support of the anniversary.
to officially join the event on Facebook and then invite your friends.
for sample status updates and other ways to participate on Facebook.
for sample Tweets and other ways to take part using Twitter.
We invite you to join the effort by participating on social media (i.e. Facebook, LinkedIn, Peoplemovers, Google+, etc.). Make statements of love, pride, and support for Michigan. Enocourage others to do the same. Be sure the word "MICHIGAN" appears in your messages and that #Mich175 is used in all Tweets.
