I was reminded the other day that we are fortunate to live in an area where so many folks are dedicated to helping within the community. There are clubs, organizations and individuals who contribute so much to this county. The perfect example of this was when I was leaving a meeting at the courthouse and saw my friends Rita and Lowell Wayne Sullivan working on the grounds around the monument in the courthouse lawn. The VFW and the American Legion are tasked with care of the monument, however the work is basically done by Rita and Lowell Wayne. The point is that money and praise were unsolicited. The real satisfaction was in making a contribution to the community. We all know of instances such as this where individuals and organizations should be recognized for their dedication. Let’s hear from others.
