Our city is blessed with so many caring individuals who do not hesitate to set aside their own burdens in order to assist others.
It will not happen overnight, but we will rebuild…the mounds of debris will go away…we will come back stronger and more determined than ever. Thank you all for your perseverance, your hard work, your patience and most of all your faith…your faith in God, in yourselves, in those around you and in our town.
