The Prosperity Agenda: Making the Most of Michigan Winters

prosperity-agenda-thumbIt seemed that winter weather took forever to get to Michigan this year, but now that January is here, we’re back to the usual snow and cold temperatures. For some people that’s bad news, but many hearty Michigan residents are happy to be out skiing, sledding, ice fishing, snowmobiling, ice skating and otherwise enjoying the season that turns Michigan into a winter wonderland. My co-host for this month’s show is John “Gonzo” Gonzalez, statewide entertainment, travel, beer & food writer for Our guests are Michelle Grinnell from Travel Michigan at the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, Jamie Furbush from the Frankenmuth Chamber of Commerce and Convention and Visitors Bureau and Nancy Krupiarz, executive director for Michigan Trails and Greenways Alliance.
