Bay College basketball off to good start

This week’s bouquets go to:

From Tom Grant of Escanaba:

I want to give two thumbs up to the Bay College basketball programs. This is just the first year and both the men and the ladies have showed that they are up for the challenge. It was a lot of work getting these programs up and running and convincing players to come here and convincing others to stay in the area, and it could have been a really bleak start. Instead, it has been a surprising success. I think that these two teams deserve the community’s support. Support the men and women on a great first year. We all look forward to successful programs.


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.
