This week's bouquets go to:
From the coaches, players, and families of the 2012 Junior Girl All-Stars:
Thank you to the Escanaba and Gladstone businesses and communities for your generosity towards the Escanaba Junior Little League softball team and their trips to Akron, Ohio and the World Series in Kirkland, Wash. Because of your support, these girls were able to represent Michigan, and the 13 state Central Region, at the World Series games while achieving the honor of becoming the sixth place team in the world. Your support allowed these girls to participate in a "once in a lifetime" event and made a dream come true for each of the 11 players. The generosity of this community has been nothing short of fantastic - thank you!
From The Delta-Schoolcraft Great Start Collaborative:
"We would like to thank and recognize Leigh's Garden Winery and Mackinaw Trail Winery for hosting our "Evening of Wine and Chocolate" events in Escanaba and Manistique. Each of these businesses generously provided a fantastic evening of wine sampling and fun to event goers. Thank you for not only your generous donation, but also for your support of the work that we are doing on behalf of young children in our communities. We would also like to thank everyone who donated items or gave of their time to make our events successful as well. Thank you - we could not have done it without you."
Each Saturday the Daily Press salutes individuals and groups from our area who have had a very positive impact on the way we live.
