THANK 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!
