Band boosters thank community

This week’s bouquets go to:

From the Esky Band Boosters:

“The Esky Band Boosters would like to thank all the volunteers who helped make this years ‘Pancake Dinner’ another huge success. Also thank you to all the band students and their families who sold tickets, help make pancakes and provided music during the dinner. The Esky Band Boosters helps fund equipment repair, new instrument purchases, new music, provides camp scholarships and many other much needed expenses. Thank you to all those who attended and help make the dinner a success.”

From Ellen Arnell-Marcell and Doug Mantela:

“Our thanks to the City of Escanaba for the beautiful cross country ski trail at Ludington Park. It is well groomed and awesome! We have such fun in our park, whether is be summer fun, band concerts, fireworks, sliding down the hills or now skiing. And a “porta potty” to if necessary. Thanks much, Escanaba; we know so many reasons why we love living here.”
