UPS driver went above and beyond
To the editor:
Today I went out to my building using my walker as my aid, but I am really supposed to be using my wheel chair.
I had two heavy bags of stuff that I had gotten out of my building that I needed, and as I was walking away from my building, the UPS carrier that was driving up my street saw that I was struggling to carry the bags, and he stopped and ask would I like some help.
I said yes, absolutely, so he assisted me with my bags and made certain that I got back inside my home safely. I even called the UPS center today and gave them the zip code for Sylva, the UPS center that I am sure he drives from, and asked did they have an employee of the month.
The representative that I spoke to said she was sure that they do, and I told her that I would like to recommend him, Tony, (the carrier that assisted me with my bags), as the employee of the month for his being so courteous in stopping to assist me with these heavy bags.
Thank you, Tony, for your simple act of kindness.

Thanks for promoting quilt show To the editor:
On behalf of the Shady Ladies Quilting Group, I would like to thank everyone in the community who attended our 16th Annual Quilt Show May 3-5 this year at the Folkmoot Center.
As makers, we all love what we do and are thrilled when we have an appreciative audience.
The admission proceeds were our gift to the Folkmoot Center who generously hosts our show each year, and the raffle ticket sales were donated in full to the Pigeon Community Multicultural Development Center.
I continue to be impressed with the generosity and kind spirit of giving that is so evident in our community. I would also like to thank The Mountaineer for the wonderful coverage you provided for us.
Thank you again and see you next year.
