Going above and beyond to help others

This week’s bouquets go to:

From Sharon Neumann of Escanaba:

On a recent morning as I and my helper (Tom Ammel) came out of Elmer’s County Market with my weeks supply of groceries, we found the car had a flat tire. Both of us have health issues, so we couldn’t change a tire and just didn’t know what to do. Dan, the maintenance man at Elmer’s County Market, came to our rescue and with his air compressor, pumped in enough air to get home. Free service — wouldn’t even take a tip.


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, www.dailypress.net, and clicking on the submit news button. Once there, click on “Bouquets” and follow the simple instructions.
