Community remembers 9/11

September 17, 2011
Daily Press

This week's bouquets go to:

From Virginia Shomin of Escanaba:

Thank you to the Escanaba Fire Department. On Sunday, 9/11, The Escanaba Public Safety Department had fire trucks polished and shiny in their driveway and had the tallest ladder of one of them raised and an American flag was flying from the top of the ladder. It was a touching scene.

From Paul Mitchell the School - Escanaba:

Paul Mitchell the School - Escanaba sends a huge bouquet to that donated trays of baked goods. The baked goods were in turn delivered to local public service agencies in honor of 9/11, thanking them for their devoted service to our community.

From The Greater Federation of Women's Club of Escanaba:

The Greater Federation of Women's Club of Escanaba (GFWC) would like to thank everyone in the community who made this year's seventh annual Back to School Wishes on Wheels Program such a success. GFWC would like to thank all individuals, businesses, and area organizations and clubs that donated their time, school supplies or monetary donations. As a result of the community's generous donations many Delta County students will have the necessary back packs and supplies to start school in a positive manner.

Kelly Arnold of Escanaba:

I would like to thank Exact Eye Care for the outstanding customer service. The arm of my son's glasses broke while working out of town. When he came back the store where we purchased them refused to help, aside from offering a discount for a new pair of frames, even though they were supposed to still be under warranty. As a last resort I went to Exact Eye Care who contacted their Iron Mountain store and they coordinated with a frames dealer and he will have his new glasses in time for senior pictures. They went above and beyond and will have my family's business from now on. Thank you again for your care, understanding and help.
