Daily Press

This week's bouquets go to:

` From American Legion Post 559:

"American Legion Post 559 thanks all those who attended and supported the St. Patrick's Day pancake breakfast on March 14. Thanks also to the local businesses and individuals who donated door prizes for the event.

"Proceeds help to fund the Rock Legion's youth programs, including Boys State, minor league baseball, the annual Punt, Pass and Kick contest, and contributions to the Mid Peninsula grad night party and Christmas candy for area children."

` From the Marble Plus Knife Club:

"The Marble Plus Knife Club's 15th annual Cabin Fever Knife and Gun show was a huge success. We wish to thank all who attended, the volunteers, dealers and donors. The club will donate a total of $2,100 to local organizations."

` From Paddy Fitch, Ford River:

"Paddy Fitch and all the members and parents of Cub Scout Pack 411 would like to send a bouquet to Steve Pike from the Alger-Delta Cooperative Electric Association for his fascinating and enlightening presentation at our recent Pack meeting.

"We all gained an appreciation and understanding of electricity, its power and how to be safe around it."

` From Mary Cary Crawford:

"Thanks to the Daily Press and the sponsors of the current breakfast serial story "A Long Walk to Water." This has been an educational story that tugs at the heartstrings. I've looked forward to each installment."

` From Rosemary Hakes:

The Delta County Suicide Prevention Task Force would like to thank Rick LaFave and Lamar Advertising for donating the billboard space on North Lincoln Road which supports seeking help to prevent suicide.

` From the Menominee-Delta-Schoolcraft Community Action Agency:

"While we're putting the wraps on the 2010 Walk for Warmth, we do so knowing that the communities we serve are filled with caring, generous people who will help their neighbors in times of need.

"Our agency offers a myriad of programs, with most if not all having one target: to eliminate the causes and symptoms of poverty in our three-county service area. Walk for warmth is a perfect complement to that important endeavor.

" It's important to point out how humbled we feel by this positive response. From its sponsors (Island Resort and Casino, WJMN-TV3 and Radio Results Network in Delta County; Bay Cities Radio, Hot Flame Gas, Island Resort and Casino, WFRV-TV5 and Radio Results Network in Menominee County), to volunteers to local youngsters to media support and CAA staffers who truly go above and beyond, there are no words to describe our sincere gratitude. We know the trust we've earned from the community must be maintained and built upon. We will never take it for granted. Once again residents answered the call. Approximately $35,000 was raised in Delta County and $11,000 in Menominee County. This year was very successful. If you helped in some way, be it financially or at the Walk, brat sale or some other related event, thanks for making this a true community project. If you need help with your heating bills, please contact us - and remember these good people who've banded together on your behalf."

` From Jill Thompson:

"The American Red Cross would like to thank the all the donors who took the time to donate 188 units of blood during last weeks drive. Their generous gift of life will make a difference in up to 564 people's lives!

" A thank you also goes to the Escanaba Civic Center, Gladstone's Memorial United Church and NewPage for allowing the American Red Cross to hold the blood drives at their locations.

"In addition, we would like to thank Super One Foods, Elmer's County Market, Hardee's, McDonald's and Perspectives for providing refreshments for the blood drive. We also could not have the blood drive without the help of all our wonderful RSVP volunteers. "
