Jackson Manor says thank you
To the editor:This is a thank-you letter to all the people who helped Jackson Manor during the ice storm.
Key people who need special recognition for their efforts are fire chief Jason Mouser and his staff for procuring an additional generator and supplies and helping with communication, the Jackson Police Department for its concern and assistance with communication, Dick Knaup and his emergency preparedness staff for their behind-the-scenes work to ensure the warmth and safety of our residents, the many employees who came to work as scheduled and stayed as needed, those who showed up just in case we needed them, Kenney Fluegge for opening Pocahontas Lumber and getting additional space heaters, regional manager Liz Harris of the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services for her concern and behind-the scenes assistance and all the families and visitors who assisted us during this time.
We had people who brought in hot soup for our employees and gloves and additional lap robes and blankets for our residents.
I wish I could personally thank everyone who came to our assistance, but there are just too many to list. Many are unnamed, unknown people who worked behind the scenes. Jackson is more than a place of beautiful homes, schools and churches. It is a community of caring, concerned, compassionate people.
DAVE WALKER, administrator, Jackson Manor
