This week's bouquets go to:

` From the American Red Cross

The American Red Cross would like to thank the all the donors who took the time to donate 177 units of blood during last weeks drive. Their generous gift of life will make a difference in up to 531 people's lives. A thank you also goes to the Escanaba Civic Center, Gladstone's First Lutheran Church and NewPage for allowing the American Red Cross to hold the blood drives at their locations. In addition, we would like to thank the area businesses refreshments for the blood drive. We also could not have the blood drive without the help of all our wonderful RSVP volunteers.

` From Bobbie Stacey of Escanaba

Many thanks for all the wonderful hard work and support from volunteers and sponsors who made The fourth Annual Salvation Army Home Run a success. A special thanks to Community Action RSVP without whose volunteers the event could not have happened this year.

` From Tanya Schuster of Escanaba

A big thank you to the organizers, volunteers, sponsors and coaches that made the Heartbreakers Memorial Softball Tournament a great success. This event continues to attract more teams each year. Not only is this a great fund-raiser for the Heartbreakers softball teams. but it brings money into our community.
