New Yoopers are thankful for welcome

This week’s bouquets go to:

From Jim and Rosa Swanson of Delta County:

We moved to the U.P. a little over a month ago and want to say thank you to everyone for being so welcoming to us. From the former homeowners who left us a well-cared for home, our new neighbors and businesses nearby, to our new LDS church family in Escanaba, our realtor and insurance agent, to everyone who has given helpful advice as we settle into our little part of heaven. We cannot thank you enough. Everyone we have interacted with has made us feel so at home and happy that we chose to live here. Thank you.

From Dewayne Ide, post commander, American Legion Post 115:

The members of American Legion Post 115 wish to thank the Pioneer TV and Appliance Store for their generous donation and help in securing a refrigerator for our use. Thank you again.


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.
