Letters to the Editor: Many helped after storm struck area

On Thursday, May 18, 2017, some of us who live on Pearson Road in New Haven experienced quite an intense storm of rain, hail and wind. The aftermath included three large trees across the road and downed power lines. Immediately, members of the local fire department were on the scene clearing debris and directing traffic. These people left the safety of their homes to ensure the safety of others in our area. People from the New Haven road crew were also present to assist the cleanup.
My wife and I would like to thank Phil Livingston, Mark Livingston, two other young men whose names we do not know, the workers on the New Haven road crew, and the Green Mountain Power employees for the work they did in cleaning up the mess and restoring electricity to the people on Pearson Road. It is a very calming factor to know that we have concerned people who are there to lend a hand when emergencies arise.
We thank you all very much for your commitment to others!
Don & Eileen Rinker
New Haven
