Groups made Salmon in the Classroom possible

This week’s bouquets go to:

From Traci Pinar

I would like to extend a gracious thank you to the sponsors of my “Salmon in the Classroom” program for the fifth grade at Upper Elementary School in Escanaba. Through their support and volunteer hours, my students have been able to work with a “live” resource instilling within them a passion for being a steward to our environment. I salute the following: Escanaba River Association, Trout Unlimited of Marquette, and the DNR. I would also like to thank the parents, Professor Brian Black from Bay College, and Pioneer Trail Park for all their assistance at our release.


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.
