Good Samaritan


To the Editor:

A couple of weeks ago some unknown person did a very nice thing for me, something that is worthy of public appreciation.

Due to a professional obligation, I had worn office clothes that day, but needed to stop by the YMCA for physical therapy on the way home. After changing into my gym clothes, I took my good dress and jewelry out to my car before returning inside. That night about 9 p.m., while putting my clothing and jewelry away, I realized that I had lost the fairly expensive necklace I had worn that day. After looking high and low for it at home, I headed back to Vevay with a flashlight to look in the parking lot at the “Y.”

My necklace was nowhere to be found but, luckily, the van belonging to the cleaning lady was parked in the front entry circle. I told her what had happened, then saw that Karma O’Day, membership director at the “Y,” was still there, having stayed late. I repeated the situation to Karma, and she looked in the lost and found drawer and there was my necklace — what a relief.

I wish to thank the honest person who saw my necklace in the parking lot and turned it in. Besides being fairly valuable, it has a great deal of sentimental value and I cannot tell you how much I appreciate your honesty and kindness.
