Programs have successful summer

This week’s bouquets go to:

From The Gladstone School and Public Library:

The Gladstone School and Public Library would like to give a big thank you to all of the area businesses, the Friends of the Gladstone Library and public patrons who helped make our summer reading program a huge success. We appreciate their support to enhance literacy in our community.

From Camp New Day U.P.:

Camp New Day U.P. had a great week of camp this year. This was our 16th year and the board members all agree that it was a very successful camp. The counselors and campers were a big part of that success. There are many people and organizations that contributed to the success through donations of time, money, food, and other support, and we would like to thank them all.

From Maggie Miller:

I would like to congratulate the master gardener’s for the terrific job they’ve done making the round about garden look so amazing. It is just stunning and I think it’s wonderful that we have a club dedicated to making our city look so great. I also want to compliment them on the beautiful petunia baskets lining the downtown. The city has also done a great job keeping them well watered and cared for.

From the Delta County Cancer Alliance Board of Directors:

As the residents of Escanaba welcomed and enjoyed the members of the Airstream caravan’s recent visit to our community, little did we realize what a positive and generous impact they would make on our city.

Not only did they make a favorable contribution to the city’s economy, but very few know that

this group left a most generous and heart-warming monetary gift to the Delta County Cancer Alliance. During the week that they stayed in Escanaba, the members had a fund-raiser and they donated the total proceeds to the DCCA.

It not only overwhelmed the hearts of the board, but it will further warm the hearts of the many cancer patients who receive financial assistance because of their kind thoughtfulness.
