This week's bouquets go to:
From Tom Grant of Escanaba:
I am not sure where the Patriot Guard got started, but I want to commend those veterans who participate. A few weeks ago, it was quite hot, in the 90s, high humidity, the whole works. I drove by the funeral home and there were some of the Patriot Guard standing by the door, holding their flags, sweltering in the heat. Quite awhile later, I came through again, they were still there, honoring a veteran, the way it should be. I am sure that these folks don't get paid for what they do. They do it out of honor and respect for their fellow veterans. They deserve all of our respect. True heroes, God bless, and thank you!
From Escanaba GFWC:
Escanaba GFWC and WDBC-WYKX would like to send bouquets to the businesses and everyone who donated their time, school supplies or monetary donations to "Wishes on Wheels." As a result of the community's generous donations, many Delta County students will have the necessary supplies to enhance their education.
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.
They may also be sent to us by going to our Web site, www.dailypress.net, and clicking on the submit news button. Once there, click on "Bouquets" and follow the simple instructions.
