In East Haddam – A big Thank You to those who helped during Tropical Storm Irene

September 9, 2011 Letters To Editor 1 Comment

THUMBS-UP-graphic-stampTHANK YOU residents of East Haddam for the incredible response to our town’s needs during Hurricane Irene.

We are blessed with a skilled town ready to roll up its sleeves and do whatever it takes to help our citizens.

We owe a big debt of gratitude to Emergency Management Director Craig Mansfield, assistant director Jiffy Spencer and the well trained Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) they lead.

Thanks to our many volunteers – Emergency Management, CERT, Ambulance, Fire, Community Lions, Lions, the girls’ soccer team, high school staff and students, concerned citizens, seniors and our town employees – who all went way beyond the call of duty.

Thanks to local businesses Grist Mill, Village Pizza, 7-11, Shagbark Lumber and Nathan Hale Pharmacy for their assistance.

I am always amazed at the generosity of our residents who donate their time, expecting nothing in return, with their sole motivation of helping others and making East Haddam a great place to live and raise our children!

    What a great job you guys did. I volunteered my time only 2 nights and it felt great. Food was great. We were out of power for 6 days, but with that said, I met more nice people at dinner than I can tell you. Also, with all that went on, everything went so smoothly. The State of CT should take lessons from the people of East Haddam.
