From the Bonifas Fine Arts Center:
"Thank you to the community from the Auction Committee at the Bonifas Fine Arts Center for the wonderful donations and volunteers who helped make May's Run for the Arts the best fund-raiser in years. Thanks, too, to the guests who enjoyed the party, ate the food, and went home with treasures. See you in 2012."
From Dale and Jo Skogman:
"A huge bouquet to the Pine Mountain Musical Festival for once again bringing a wonderful musical treat to Escanaba. 'New York and Paris in Revue!,' presented on Friday evening, June 17, at the Besse Center was marvelous. Six excellent vocalists, three men and three women, with a gifted accompanist shared familiar, toe tapping music that enthralled those in attendance. What a privilege to have professional musicians bring an appetizing taste of culture to the northwoods! Well done and thanks."
