This week's bouquets go to:
From Boy Scout Troop 411:
Troop 411 would like to thank all of the residents for their continued support of scouting in our area. The scouts collecting bottles and cans had a very successful day earning money to help provide the Scouting program. To get a feel for the impact of the funds generated locally on one Saturday in July, the total amount would be enough to pay the complete cost of four scouts attending Camp Hiawatha for a full week.
Scouts from Boy Scout Troop 411 of Escanaba conducted a bottle and can drive at Elmer's Super Market, Super One Foods and Walmart on Saturday, July 9. The can and bottle drive, along with the annual popcorn sale, are the major funding sources for the troop to provide a quality program to the boys and to help send boys to Camp Hiawatha, Mackinac Island Service Camp, National Youth Leadership Training and many more.
The boys will again be collecting bottles and cans, but not until Jan 7, 2012, but area residents can always call to get their bags of cans picked up!
From the Indian Education Program
director and parent committee:
Jessie Seronko, director of the Indian Education Program for Gladstone Area Schools, and the program's Parent Committee, would like to send a "large" bouquet, and a Chi Megwetch (many thanks), to the businesses which gave gift certificates and products and other donations for the Annual Indian Education Program's Spring Feast's Giveaway. We appreciate everyone's generousity and support.
From the Gladstone School
and Public Library:
The Gladstone School and Public Library would like to thank all of the volunteers and businesses that generously donated their time, money and gift certificates for our summer reading program this year. Your continued support promotes literacy for children and helps make our program a success.
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 Virtual Newsroom button. Once there, click on "Bouquets" and follow the simple instructions.
