9/11 quilt project was moving event

This week’s bouquets go to:

From Maureen Lapinski of Bark River:

Escanaba recently had the opportunity to host the showing of the 9/11 World Trade Center Memorial Quilt Project. It was impressive how, when asked, people gave a positive response.

Volunteers helped with the set-up and take-down of the 300 quilts, sat at the information table and handed out flyers. Thank you to all those who volunteered be they individuals or members from RSP, Bay de Noc Quilt Guild or Rapid River Quilters.

Businesses were supportive. The media in the area aired radio public service announcements. Bay College provided the venue as a public service to the community. A thank you goes out to Emilie Schada, event coordinator for Bay College, who worked with the show to help make it happen. And lastly a special UP thank you to Beverly and Dennis Kuemin, for making Escanaba their U.P. stop for the exhibit.

As a local coordinator for the show, I want to sincerely thank everyone who helped make this a memorable and moving event of which the Escanaba community can be proud.

From the Escanaba Boys Tennis Team:

The 2019 Escanaba Boys Tennis Team wants to thank it’s sponsors, parents and coaches for their season.
