I think it is appropriate as I write this on Labor Day to recognize the incredible work of all the people in the community and from communities far and wide that pitched in to help out our little town.
Then there are the droves of electric line repair and tree removal vehicles that descended on Ridgefield from as far away as Colorado. These people left the safety of their own homes and their families to help pitch in and dig us back out. While the drama of the damage that hit our town is not that severe--many towns suffered far worse, it is truly impressive what people will do to help each other out. So, on this Labor Day I'd like to tip my hat to the men and women that sacrificed their own time and comfort to help out those in need.
