Workers heroic during cold snap
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the men and women who have cleared our streets, delivered our mail, collected our trash, kept our power and water on and served and protected us -- police and fire departments -- over the past several days. You have gone above and beyond the call of duty and need to be recognized and thanked for your efforts and hard work.
These past days of snow, extreme cold temperatures and bone chilling wind chill temperatures have taken a toll on many people. However, you have stepped up to the plate each and every day by going to work and out into the elements to insure your fellow neighbors and community members are safe and sound in their homes.
Therefore, I want to say thank you. I do not know many people who would do what you do but am sure proud of the job each of you have done in our communities. Hats off to you, you are professionals and deserve to be recognized. Thank you.
