Daily Press

This week's bouquets go to:

From Randy Daigneault of Escanaba:

A special bouquet to Super One Foods and all those individuals who bought a paper forget-me-not flower during Nov 1-13 for the Alzheimer's Association recent drive during National Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month. They raised over $300 to help families throughout the U.P.

A special bouguet to Bishop Noa Home for co-hosting the annual candle light service to remember those who died this past year from Alzheimer's disease and to honor all those who are living with the disease.

From Robert "Bob" Robinette family:

"Thank you to the Bark River School and the American Legion Post 438 for the wonderful program on Veteran's Day honoring our father, Robert Robinette, and Harvey Arkens - both World War II veterans.

Special thanks to Joe Potvin for his research and presentation. Our Dad never talks about his service years, so we all learned a lot about that experience for him. We are so proud of him, along with all the veteran who served during war times.

"The high school band and instructor did a fantastic job playing a set o patriotic songs - they brought tears to our eyes. The students attending the program were very respectful, and most wanted to stay after to shake hand with Dad and Harvey and thank them for their service.

this was a most memorable day for our Dad and our family. We are grateful to all those involved."

From Gladstone teacher Paulette Larson:

"I would like to thank all who participated in this year's Trick-Or-Treat for UNICEF on Halloween. Here are the totals:

Cameron - $225.97

Jones -$340.75

For a total of $566.72 donation.

Great job!

A big thank-you the teachers, students, parents, and community members for supporting this cause!"
