An act of kindness not forgotten

This week’s bouquets go to:

From: Kristin Mathison:

A big bouquet to “Brenda” in the OSF Registration Department for giving me a ride to Gladstone after missing my DATA bus on Jan. 11. She went way out of her way on a stormy, winter day and I want her to know her kindness is very much appreciated.

From the Gladstone Community Christmas Day Dinner Committee :

The Gladstone Community Christmas Day Dinner committee would like to thank all the amazing volunteers that made the dinner possible. It took many energetic and smiling volunteers to do all the advance preparation of shopping, cooking, baking the delicious pies and rolls, carving all those turkeys and peeling all those potatoes, setting up the beautiful dining area, delivering meals to many shut-ins, greeting all the guests, serving the food, and lots of cleaning up afterwards. Thank you!


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.
