Helping hands appreciated

Letter to the Editor from Brenda Mason of Trail

This is a thank you to the four kind people (one young man and three ladies) who helped me get my car out a pothole at the trailhead near the walking trail by the airport.

With a lot of muscle power on their part, and a few choice words on my part, they were able to push me out of the pothole.

The gift of your time and help made my day! They say that it takes a village to raise a child, it must also be that it takes a village to help out a senior, and you are a part of that village.

Thank you for helping me when I needed it. I am so very grateful to live in a community where there are people such as yourselves who would take the time and effort to help a complete stranger.

Thanks for being there.

Brenda Mason
