Volunteers and business makes mark in community

This week’s bouquets go to:

From: The Gail Hardwick Memorial Golf Fundraiser:

A huge bouquet sent out to all the surrounding communities for their support of The Gail Hardwick Memorial Golf Fundraiser. We would also like to send a great big thank you to all of the businesses and individuals who donated to this great event. Without your support, much of the work we do is not possible. Also. thank you Gladstone Golf Course for hosting us. The food you provided us was fantastic! Thank you so much.

From: Camp New Day U.P. board members:

Camp New Day UP had an awesome camp this year. Our 26 campers were exceptional and came from across the Upper Peninsula. Our counselors, other staff, board members and volunteers were also fantastic and a great time was had by all. This was our 18th year and the best camp yet. There are many people and organizations that contributed to this success through donations of time, money, food, and other support. We would like to thank them all. We are very thankful to all who volunteered their time to transport the children to and from camp and a special thank you to our volunteers who were at camp. Parents tell us every year that if it weren’t for CNDUP, their children would not be able to go to a summer camp. Without your community support there would be no Camp New Day U.P.


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.
