March 10, 2010: Community service is alive and well

To The Editor:
As a volunteer for the Fairview Public Library, I would like to thank Don Allen for his help last week. He was busy trying to remove the accumulated piles of snow from the NBT’s parking lot. Some of the piled snow had been pushed onto the adjacent Fairview Public Library driveway. It was about three foot high and as hard as concrete.
I was trying to clear the driveway and could not budge the frozen pie of snow.
I asked Don Allen if he could help remove NBT’s snow from the driveway. When I returned a couple of hours later, the driveway was clear!
Thank you Don Allen for your willingness to help the community in general and this man and his shovel in particular.
