Burner replica will enhance community

This week’s bouquets go to:

This past year a historic landmark disappeared. For many who live or enjoy Nahma it was tragic when the 120 year old Nahma burner fell to the ground this year. Doug and Sue Lalonde are avid Nahma campers and along with their family have enjoyed the view of the landmark from the shores of Bay de Noc where they camp every summer. The Lalondes and their family honored the landmark and brought another glimpse of it back to the Nahma community at last weekend’s Labor Day parade. The float featuring the burner took the first place prize. The Lalondes have decided to donate the burner replica that appeared on the float to the Nahma community for others to enjoy.

A special thanks to each and every person who volunteered their time, donated their funds, and helped collect signatures for the Ban Dismemberment Abortion petition drive at the “Choose Life” outreach booth at the U.P. State Fair. May God bless you all for your efforts to make the booth very successful again this year.
