Opinion: Dairy’s event was appreciated

Times have changed and to find people that are willing to offer someone assistance without expecting something in return is really quite rare these days. There was a time not too many decades ago, a time when I appreciated life and how people treated people like friends and were always willing to offer a hand and had no intention of asking for anything in return. It was the feeling you get when you do something nice and maybe make someone else’s day a little bit better.
Being extremely “old school,” I found the celebration that Monument Farms offered the community on Saturday, July 18, a real touch of the old way of life. They went all out big time and spent a lot of money to show the people that buy their products and their community in general, that they appreciate them. They had free games for the kids, free food and beverage, tractor rides, great live music and more. Our grandkids had an excellent time and in turn, seeing them happy, naturally made us happy.
My wife and I would like to say that we thought it was an excellent event and we appreciated it greatly and I’m sure we speak for hundreds of others as well. Thanks to all that played any role at all in making that event happen, from setting up tables to blowing up balloons. It was a true community event that was simply outstanding. Great job, folks.
