Local Businesses Celebrating Anniversaries in Northern Michigan

This June will mark the 40th anniversary of Traverse, Northern Michigan’s Magazine.

It’s impossible to celebrate our 40th anniversary at Traverse without also honoring the small businesses and nonprofit organizations that have supported our endeavors through the years and continue to make Northern Michigan such a special place to live and visit. These entrepreneurs are the backbone of our communities, and now more than ever, it’s vital that we support them as they’ve supported us.

Congratulations to all of the local businesses and nonprofits celebrating milestone anniversaries this year, as well as those who are purely celebrating another year of being in business.
