We have enjoyed a long relationship with Peggy Engel, GME Senior Program Administrator -Division of Cardiovascular Medicine at the University of Michigan. Each year, Peggy invites us to play for their graduation dinner which is always held at a lovely restaurant in the Ann Arbor area. This year it was the historic Gandy Dancer in Ann Arbor.

Situated in the beautifully restored 1886 Michigan Central Depot, Gandy Dancer is both an architectural landmark and an elegant restaurant. A popular venue in Ann Arbor, the Gandy Dancer's fine cuisine and historic atmosphere make a grand setting for rehearsal dinners and wedding receptions.

We noticed that each time a train went by, the guests throughout the restaurant applauded. Curious about the tradition, we asked a member of the wait staff. They told us that many years ago, a train had derailed and struck the building. That is when the tradition of applauding when a train successfully passed by began.

Congratulations to the Fellows of this program! We look forward to being a part of next years celebration.
