Sturgis A to Z

Author: Veronica Grosek

Happy Thursday, Sturgis!

As the weather heats up (then cools down, then heats up again, then…) I can’t help but make a list of all of the wonderful activities I want to do this season. My list has stretched longer and longer, so I decided to share it with you all and aim for a comprehensive “Sturgis A to Z” activity checklist! A few letters were tricky, but I finally compiled a list that I feel embodies much of what Sturgis is most proud of, and will keep us busy all summer:
