On Wednesday, January 21st,  Judy Robinson from Governer Rick Snyder’s Executive Office presented a Special Tribute to Zehnders Snowfest from Governer Rick Snyder.

ON BEHALF OF THE PEOPLE OF MICHIGAN I, Rick Snyder, Governor of Michigan, do hereby pay special tribute to
Zehnder’s Snowfest 2015
Rick Snyder
LET IT BE KNOWN, that it is my distinct honor to recognize Zehnder’s Snowfest 2015.
A true Pure Michigan event, Zehnder’s Snowfest provides activities for the whole family. Visitors enjoy world-class snow sculpting championships; high school snow sculpting competitions, US National Collegiate ice carving competition, as well as a 100-block ice carving exhibition by award-winning, master sculptor Greg Butauski.
Zehnder’s Snowfest brings more than 150,000 people to Frankenmuth to enjoy the excitement and beauty of our Michigan winter. The Michigan Apple Recipe contest, Chef’s Hot Food competition and lots of children’s activities draw visitors from all over this great state and beyond.
On behalf of the people of Michigan, I would like to recognize Zehnder’s Snowfest 2015 for bringing the beauty of winter to its visitors in this unique celebration. I commend the organizers and volunteers for their hard work and commitment to this event.
IN SPECIAL TRIBUTE, and on behalf of the state of Michigan, this document is signed and dedicated to Zehnder’s Snowfest 2015. I extend my gratitude for all you have contributed to our great state and the enjoyment of its residents.
