Chalk it Up to Alma College

Students, staff and faculty members at Alma College participated in the first annual Chalk the Walk event in downtown Alma May 22. 

The free event — a collaboration between downtown Alma business owners, the Alma Community Art Center and the Gratiot Area Chamber of Commerce — drew more than 100 participants and 40 sponsors overall. Trophies were made and given out by Alma Mayor Greg Mapes, along with several awards, including the Picasso Award and the Scotty Award.
