Grateful to community
I wish to thank all of the people in our wonderful valley, and our wonderful firefighters for confronting the weather and for all their help putting my fire out — Darlene Hall.
I can tell you with great certainty that the heart of our community continues to beat strong in the face of adversity. We are a resilient bunch who always seems to go the extra mile, when family and neighbors need a helping hand.
I love being a part of a community that shines brightest during the darkest hours. Thank you to the firefighters responding in the worst of conditions and saving an adjacent structure, and to Aero Methow Rescue Service and Nina and Kevin, who took care of our family.
And a big thank you to all of our neighbors and community — your concern and kindness are truly overwhelming. Darlene and our entire family want to thank you all so very much — happy holidays.
Mason and Nikki Brandt
Aero Methow Rescue Service was a beneficiary of Mike Real’s posthumous gift. We are all still reeling with the loss of Mike as he was a friend to many of us and a long-time supporter. His loss leaves a hole in our heart, and we ache for Jane and his family and friends.
I wish I had known of his intention to give to Aero Methow Rescue Service and 14 other nonprofit organizations in the Methow. I would have assured him that we would be good stewards of his gift and that his gift will help support the great work of these organization and that his gift would serve so many.
In these uncertain times, people’s needs have increased, resources are scarce, and those providing needed services are fatigued, we keep our head up and persevere.
