Barbara Purnell of Braytown Road has nominated Chad Terpening for Vevay Media Group’s ‘Good for You’ award.
Barbara Purnell writes: “I would like to nominate Chad Terpening for the ‘Good for You’ award.
“Before Christmas I had gone to the library to get on the Internet, when this young man found me and told me that he had noticed air leaking from my tire and that there was a screw in it. He told me to finish what I was doing and he’d take care of it.
“When I came out of the library he was getting ready to go and get another can of fix-a-flat because the first one didn’t work. I offered him money to get it and he told me not to worry about it. He came back a few minutes later and put in the new can. He made sure it was working and when he got ready to leave, again I offered him money for the fix-a-flat and for his trouble and he told me not to worry about it and ‘Merry Christmas’.
“It is good to know there are still honest, very kind and helpful people out there and his parents are to be commended, also. Good job to all of you.”
Congratulations Chad Terpening! For being a caring member of the Switzerland County community, you will be receiving a free $5 footlong sandwich from the Subway store in Vevay.
