Volunteers speed snow removal

Friday, December 31, 2004

To the editor:

I want to thank the many friends, property owners and farmers who volunteered their time, equipment and fuel in assisting with snow removal during the recent storm. The efforts of these citizens allowed our crews to move from road to road more quickly. The large amount of snow and the deep drifts caused the work to take more time than usual. Without the volunteers, many additional hours would have been required.

Thanks for all the assistance and hard work. Driver carefully, and have a happy new year.
