More Than a Thank You.......
Bless all of you wonderful men, women, and children who came out to the
Sean Powers Wood Bank
on Saturday to care for your neighbors. We were all amazed at the bounty
of wood brought in
by townspeople throughout the year........and overjoyed at the fifty
plus volunteers who came
to cut, split, stack and truck this gift.
Many of our neighbors were thrilled to receive a gift of firewood on
that day. Many more were
"warmed twice" by being able to use their own hands to provide a safety
net of firewood in the
bank to help neighbors through the winter. Additionally, two of the
people who received wood
last year, were able to give back.............One, by bringing in her
own vehicle full of wood, and
another, by strapping on a back brace, and working all morning in the
bank to serve his neighbors
(this was after he had worked all night at his regular job).
The 2017 volunteers' work resulted in 21 truckload's (21 cords) of split wood delivered
within our town
(about 16 cords) and another 8 cords stacked at the transfer station for
folks during the winter.
Once again, we were all completely fulfilled and know that Sean would be
down at this community's beautiful spirit and good will.
Thank you all,
Tom Congoran and Mary MacHarg Congoran
