To The Editor:
With winter upon us and the bustle of Christmas I had a full day ahead of me on Friday. Because of this I chose to bring my two youngest children to school that day. They always ride the bus unless they have to bring in a treat of some kind or a project.
As we approached the first cross walk there stood an older gentleman with a smile on his face waving to parents as they passed and waiting for little bundled up children to head to school. This older man has stood in that very spot every school morning for many years and he shovels spots for the kids to cross and has been there to guide our children across the street.
Upon driving past him, my middle daughter asked, mom can we do something nice for that crossing guard for Christmas, he is always there even in the freezing cold?
Now up until this point nobody had said anything in regards to this older man. When she asked this, right there I knew I must of been doing something right these last 10 years in raising her because for her to ask for something like that at a time of the year when most children are concerned with what they are getting for Christmas or what they want, is amazing.
I think it would be nice if our community could get together and do something to thank this older gentleman who has stood on North Main for many years, any suggestions would be great.
