This week's bouquets go to:
From The Heart of the North Lions:
"The (Delta-Menominee County) Heart of the North Lions would like to thank the ladies and vendors that attended our Sept. 30 Divas & Dessert evening. The "Diva's" also donated many canned goods for the Salvation Army pantry. This will help out for our neighbors in need. Local support of this event also helps our Lions Club contribute back to our community in many ways throughout the year."
From The Escanaba High School Freshman Class
"The Escanaba High School Freshman Class would like to thank all of the people and businesses that made our homecoming float both possible and a great success."
From the Bonifas Memorial Committee:
A big bouquet to the generous donors who helped us achieve our goals. The Bonifas mausoleum has been cleaned and restored; the memorial ordered. Our experience in working with people such as you has been very gratifying and humbles us as we reflect on your courtesy, your time, and your willingness to help financially. Thank you so much.
From the Bill and Sharon Dubord family and staff:
"Bouquets of candy kisses go to Ethan Nelson, 9, and his sister Sarah, 6, who were so concerned that the Michigan Meat mascot, Stewey the Steer, had been destroyed in the July 2010 fire at Michigan Meats, that Ethan convinced his mom to find a replacement for us. However, their search for another stuffed steer was unsuccessful. Their second choice was Knuckles the Stuffed Pig whom they thought would be all right since Stewey couldn't be replaced.
"Much to their surprise, Stewey was still in the corner by the Coca-Cola cooler when they came shopping since it was the other building that had been destroyed.
"Knuckles the Pig now sits proudly on our full-service meat case and will remain there as a reminder to us that the Nelson children cared enough to spend their time and efforts to do something so nice.
Who says our young people only care about themselves? Obviously they've never met Ethan and Sarah.
"Kudo's to Duane and Lori Nelson of Gladstone for raising their children to have compassion and consideration for others."
