More road washout thank-yous
After being deserted on an island for three weeks or more with roads and bridges washed out, many friends and neighbors stepped up to help out in so many ways - and neighbors want to thank them all!
Those offering vital help include Jean Coulard, Cindy Belden, Bonnie Monroe, Charlotte Needham, Bob Baker, George Chonko, Bruce Tvrdik, Perky Granger, Joan Harris, and Robin Croissant. The Thurman highway employees who have put in many hours trying to repair the never-ending damage to roads, we thank you all. If more names are called in, we'll let you know. The Garnet Lake Road bridge was repaired and completed on June 16.
