This week's bouquets go to:
From Tillie and Ivan Nedeau of Escanaba:
"On Christmas Day our 9-year-old grandson from Texarkana,Texas, had an emergency appendectomy at St. Francis Hospital. The surgeon and staff made our family feel comfortable and reassured during this very difficult time. Meals were given to the family, a Packer teddy bear to our grandson, a real bed was set up in the room for dad. Every person from x-ray to food service was friendly and warm. Some of these people - surgical nurses anesthesiologist and surgeon - were called away from their own Christmas celebrations. The Fant family appreciate the care and concern the very special people at our local hospital gave to them on Christmas vacation in Escanaba."
From Cheryl Ohman, Lakestate Industries executive director
"Lakestate Industries would like to extend a huge thank you to all the people who save their cardboard tubes and candle wax and bring it to us. You have helped make our Yooper Fire Starter business a huge success. Keep it coming."
From Kelly Arnold:
"I would like to send a bouquet to the Elks, Dave Wilson and Brent's Barbershop for the military flags that were given free to family members of current or past service men and women."
Each Saturday the Daily Press salutes individuals and groups from our area who have had a very positive impact on the way we live.
