To the Valley News:
Open letter to the Town of Lewis.
A royal thank you and “Hats off” to our Town of Lewis Highway Dept., Eldred Hutchins, Supervisor David Blades, Fire Dept., and all entities that made phenomenal repairs during and after Irene’s landing in our area.
These incredible people have worked around the clock to ensure our safety and well-being.
I only wish I could name each and every one of them and personally thank them.
All points to our home (and others’) were completely blocked by water and damage, yet they made the effort not only to inform us of the dangers, but to reopen access so that they could get out and NYSEG could gain entry to restore power. Within 24 hours they achieved that necessity. Even Suzie’s reassuring voice was a welcome sound at the Town Hall phone line.
Thank you Again and Again for you vigilance and caring.
Barbara Dunsmore, Lewis
