This past Friday was the annual Michigan Tech graduating students, Senior Walk. Eric Pohl was on hand to not only capture some photos of the event, but he also worked with a collaboration of all the MTU Campus Ministries that set up a hot dog stand on the senior walk path. They handed out free hot dogs and cups of Hi-C orange drink for the passing students.

If you're unfamiliar with the senior walk, it is like a pub crawl, where the students start in Hancock and journey through the establishments in Hancock, making their way across the Portage Lift Bridge, where they can stop for some nourishment and a chat with the Houghton Police Chief who, along with other officers keep order on the path of the walk. They then continue through Houghton.

Eric said working the hot dog stand was quite fun grilling and serving the grub and you can see by his photos, that they even had time to perform a few antics of their own in the Houghton Veterans Park.

Looked like a fun time for all.
Thanks, Eric.

Fun pix! Is that cannon there to warn speeders coming over the bridge? A shot over my head usually works for me :-)

Great work Eric! Some nourishment is a good thing!

Great job Eric! Looks like a perfect day for the walk! Thanks for keeping us trolls informed of what's going on at MTU!!

The City of Houghton is fortunate to have Chief
John Donnelly. There's a reason Houghton is always
listed in the top ten small towns in the US. John
is one of those reasons. Besides Vollwerth's hot
dogs, I have it by good authority that he also
likes a good doughnut now and then.

Alex, you always crack me up!
Good one!!
