Businesses lauded

To the Journal editor:

This letter is my way of saying thank you to Ishpeming businesses that are doing such a wonderful job in updating their facades.

Buck’s Restaurant, St. Onge Insurance Co., Congress Bar and Pizza and Wilderness Sports all deserve a huge thank you for working to restore downtown Ishpeming.

We have always had a vibrant business district and I am thrilled so many are working hard to keep it alive.

A special thank you also to all who do such a marvelous job with the planting along Lakeshore Drive, Hematite Drive, Heiden Park and old “Ish” Square.

The flowers were gorgeous this summer.
