Great Lakes Radio went to the 40th annual U.P. Builders Show this weekend, March 7-9. The Upper Peninsula Builders Association had a great turnout this year as over 120 businesses showcased their goods and services.

Information on everything from landscaping and construction to roofing and green forms of heating and energy was available. Many of the exhibitors had special deals and giveaways at their booths and the Builders Association held a raffle for a 24x24 Detached Wood Frame Garage or $10,000 cash.

Once again, the U.P. Builders Association brought the best in the business together under one roof!
