Residents pitch in for community

This week’s bouquets go to:

From the Gladstone Eighth Grade DC Trippers:

“Thank you to the Gladstone, Escanaba and Rapid River businesses who so generously donated items to our auction held on March 1 and 2 at the Gladstone Basketball Tournament.”

From Janet Lindstrom of Escanaba:

“Bravo Players De Noc for your performance in Spamalot. It was so good to laugh and just have fun during this hard cold winter. Thank you for giving our community great talent and people who are dedicated to making our town a good place to live.”

From Tri County Safe Harbor:

“Tri County Safe Harbor would like to thank the TRIO Club of Bay de Noc Community College, Dave Fournier and Sherwin Williams for their recent carpet cleaning and painting at the shelter. We would also like to thank St. Vincent de Paul for the donation of heaters.”

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.
