Dagenais Foundation helps civic center

This week’s bouquets go to:

From the Escanaba Recreation Department:

The Robert and Jeanine Dagenais Foundation made a contribution to the after school program that is held at the Catherine Bonifas Civic Center. The Robert and Jeanine Dagenais Foundation is made possible by donations from Riverside Auto Group and First Bank. The after school program is run on grants and donations throughout the community.

The program provides healthy snacks, hygiene items and school supplies to students in fourth to 12th grades within Delta County. The civic center facility is a safe, supervised environment open six days a week. There is a complete gameroom and gym available for use, along with

structured activities and laptops for homework.

From Barb Couillard of Escanaba:

A bouquet to the fine arts department at Escanaba High School for their winter concert recently. It was awesome!
