AARP tax preparers helped many people

This week’s bouquets go to:

Many thanks to the AARP (American Association of Retired People) representatives Hal, Sheldon, Shirley, Betty, Becky and Cathy for helping hundreds of local people prepare and file their state and federal taxes again this winter. For many tax seasons now, AARP representatives have provided this free service to our community and we are so grateful to them and to the Escanaba library for hosting them.

A big thanks to the tattoo artists who volunteered so much of their free time and skills to so many over last weekend for local charities.


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