This week's bouquets go to:
From Tammy Chaillier and Becky Jacobson, Escanaba:
"We would like to salute the Escanaba Pond Hockey Committee and everyone that participated, volunteered or helped out in any way to make the Pond Hockey Tournament a huge success. Much time and energy was put in to the event and it showed by how organized and smooth it went. Everyone had a great time and it was a very fun weekend. Looking forward to next year and the tournament getting bigger and better. Thank you again."
From Connie Kangas of Escanaba
"Thank you to the EAJHA, city of Escanaba and the Pond Hockey Committee for doing such an amazing job on the EAJHA Mites to Men Pond Hockey Tournament this past weekend. Fun was had by all ages. Thanks especially to everyone who volunteered so much of their personal time to make this event a success. We look forward to it being even bigger next year."
From Kim Carne, executive director of institutional advancement & foundation, Bay College:
"Bay College's Foundation would like to extend an enormous thank you to everyone for their generous gifts throughout the year and during the college's year end campaign. This year's annual campaign "Imagine the Possibilities" focused on educational support for student scholarships, the new honors program and academic development. Each gift makes an impact - changing lives everyday and advancing the landscape of our communities through education and enrichment. Over 375 scholarships totaling over $300,000 were awarded through the Foundation for the 2010-11 academic year. Bay College's impact would not be where it is today without private support from local businesses, organizations, foundations and community members. Again, thank you sponsors from the students, faculty, staff, trustees and Foundation Board at Bay College - your support is greatly appreciated."
From Don Kopacz, Delta County American Red Cross Disaster Team:
"The Delta County American Red Cross Disaster Team would like to thank the Bark River Fire Department for its generous donation to the disaster team's firefighters/emergency responders support fund. The fire department support is greatly appreciated."
From Linda Beauchamp of Escanaba:
"The Esky Band Boosters and the ESH Band Department would like to extend a huge thank you to all who came and supported the "Take Your Family to Dinner" Pancake Breakfast recently. We are closer to raising the funds we need to purchase new marching band uniforms and we thank all those involved for helping us reach our goal."
From Right to Life of Delta County:
"Right to Life of Delta County thanks each and every person who made a difference for life by their support of our annual Jan. 22, Press ad appeal. Thanks also to St. Anne's Church for holding the Respect Life Prayer Service and the 'Roses in Winter' project, St. Anthony Church in Wells and the Escanaba Catholic Faith Formation program for hosting the annual community Prayer Service for Life, to all who witnessed for life by writing letters, making phone calls, sending e-mails and making the trip to Washington D.C. to take part in the 38th annual March for Life. May God bless you all for your time and efforts."
