Grant a big help to raptor center

This week’s bouquets go to:

From Jerry Maynard, Chocolay Raptor Center:

The Chocolay Raptor Center, and our birds, want to express our sincere thanks to AEP Renewables’ Apple Blossom Wind project, a subsidiary of American Electric Power and AEP Energy, for their recent $2,000 grant to our center. This grant was especially appreciated this year because we have lost all income from speaker’s fees due to the cancellation of all of our programs caused by the pandemic. While our income has dropped, our expenses remain the same. The grant will provide much needed mice, rats, quail, medical supplies and support equipment.


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.
