Donated used books helped a good cause

This week’s bouquets go to:

From Pat Rudden, treasurer, League of Women Voters of Delta County:

Thank you to our Escanaba supporters who donated their used books for our annual sale which took place at the Waterfront Art Festival. Thanks also to the community members who support us with purchases. It was another very successful sale.

This is the only fundraiser for our League and the profits support our Voter Service efforts such as Candidate Forums and Voter Guides. Thank you also to the Daily Press for publishing notices of our book collection efforts throughout the year.

From Mike Boyer of Rapid River:

The Gail Hardwick Memorial would like to give a great big bouquet to all our sponsors who donated to our golf fundraising event at the Gladstone Golf Course. A special thank you to Lew Kline and his wonderful crew at the course you took care of us wonderfully. Thanks again all for another great year. The Gail Hardwick Memorial crew.


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,, and clicking on the submit news button. Once there, click on “Bouquets” and follow the simple instructions.
