Opinion: Thankful for town following accident

Editor’s note: A toddler was struck by an SUV in front of Otter Creek Child Center in Middlebury on April 1. 
There are not enough words to express how loved and supported Otter Creek Child Center is feeling. We are beyond blessed to be part of the Addison County Community. I would like to thank the following people.
To the Middlebury EMT who made record times, thank you. To the first responder and RN who were on the scene and knew just what to do until the EMT arrived, thank you. To the 911 dispatcher who dispatched everyone he could and keep our teacher calm while on the phone, thank you. To Officer Mason and all the other officers and troopers for closing the street and keeping us safe the rest of the afternoon, thank you.
To the Counseling Service of Addison County and the Addison County Parent/Child Center for providing support, no questions asked, thank you. To the larger early childhood community for wrapping around us with your thoughts and prayers, thank you. To my board of directors who were beyond supportive, thank you. To the OCCC community who trusted in us to do the right thing and who have provided support and prayers every step, thank you.
And last but not least, to my amazing group of teachers who knew exactly what to do and did it quickly, calmly and professionally, you ROCK. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
