Helping hands make events possible

This week’s bouquets go to:

From Pam Thorbahn, Gladstone:

“A huge thank you goes out to Rev. Laura Woodworth, of St. Stephens Episcapal church of Escanaba for once again blessing of the pets. It is too bad more pet owners don’t attend this. It is such a joyful and serene feeling knowing you have taken this step for your pet. Thank You Rev. Laura.”

From Ken Buchholtz, Bays De Noc Gobblers, Wheelin’ Sportsmen:

“The Bays de Noc Gobblers would like to send a special thank you to all of the individuals that helped support our Wheelin’ Sportsmen fundraiser that was held at Cat-Man-Do’s. We would like to thank the city for their help and support. A special thanks goes to all the other volunteers who helped make this day a success.”

From The Marine Corp League Detactment 444:

“Thank you to those who came to or participated in the Great Pumpkin Parade. Without your help and participation the parade couldn’t have been as successful as it was. Thank you all. A special thanks to A.B.A.T.E. of Michigan Region #17 for all their wonderful help.”

Each Saturday the Daily Press salutes individuals and groups from our area who have had a very positive impact on the way we live.

We identify our bouquet recipients in one of two ways: from Daily Press news pages and from nominations sent in by our readers.

Mail us a postcard or letter identifying your nomination and putting into detail what they’ve done. Include your name, address, and phone number. Send nominations to Saturday Bouquets, The Daily Press, 600 Ludington Street, Escanaba, MI 49829.

They may also be sent to us by going to our Web site,, and clicking on the submit news button. Once there, click on “Bouquets” and follow the simple instructions.
