Hello Ironworkers, Bridgemen, and friends! I am the Executive Director of the Mackinaw City Chamber of Commerce and somehow the inheritor of this page.

I would *like* to put more TLC into the Walk of Fame ceremony and brick sales. It has been very much overlooked and under-loved as an event (and monument) for several years. This is easy to do because we are an organization with so many other things happening all of the time. It sneaks up on us year after year. Our connection with and appreciation for the Ironworkers is important in our community and should not be neglected.

Is anyone out there interested in providing ideas and feedback to help us formulate a plan for growth regarding the monument or event itself?

Please send input or ideas to me:
[email protected]

Or, if you would like to be included on an e-mail list for Walk of Fame ceremony please send me your e-mail address.

Don’t forget to get 2020 brick orders in too! Call the Chamber (231)436-5574.

Thank you,

Jamie Westfall
Executive Director

There is a great write up in the St. Ignace News today (September 28th)- Garlin Jackson, a 94 year old bridge worker that you may have met at this year's Walk of Iron Induction Ceremony and the Ironworkers' Festival shared his harrowing story from the night he was stuck on the bridge in a lightning storm! Thanks for sharing, Mr. Jackson! If you haven't yet, run down and buy a copy!

It was a great turnout for the Ironworkers Walk of Fame Induction Ceremony today in beautiful Mackinaw City, Michigan at the base of the "Mighty" Mackinac Bridge. Next year we'd like to see twice as many inductees- contact us to purchase a brick for your Ironworker or Bridgeman. Thank you to everyone who came out to honor our Ironworkers and Bridgemen who built these beautiful structures that inspire and withstand the tests of man and nature. We are so honored to share the day with you.
