Proud of Community Spirit

 

Dear Editor,

This community is remarkable. After spending the last six days helping clean up flood damage, I am again reminded why I always wanted to return and raise my family in Wyalusing. Throughout these days I worked beside high school students, elementary students, friends, family, neighbors, firefighters, Lioness members, and countless people I have never met before in my life.

Everyone had the same goals in mind—to get cleaned up and get the homeowners and business owners back on their feet. I have heard reports of other devastated areas where those displaced are on their own to get cleaned up and put back together. I am so proud to live here and not there.

The teamwork, flexibility, and unending help of all those involved cannot be described by words, and I want to say thank you to all who have helped, no matter what you have done, to get our community back up and running. Don’t stop as the days go on—keep helping those in need.

Susan Kilmer
