The winning names are: 

  • Clearopathra, submitted by Darrell Weisenberger and Kent Sypniewski
  • Grace A. Plow, submitted by Kelly DeRees
  • Scoop Dogg, submitted by Jennifer Decker, Natalie Rana, and Melissa Farley
  • Blizzard Lizard, submitted by Frank Kothbauer
  • Ron Brrrgandy, submitted by Charlie Ciarkowski
  • The Big Leplowski, submitted by Chris Lewinski and Melissa Richmond

A live name reveal parade was broadcast live from the City’s Municipal Service Center early Monday morning. Residents can catch a replay of the parade on the City’s Facebook or YouTube channels or at www.cityofmidlandmi.gov/nametheplow
