Residents help each other

Thursday, July 9, 2015 by STACEY HOCH in Columns

A lot of residents in the Stiles community were hit badly by the recent hail storm and high winds.

Watching neighbors help each other clean up their properties and be there for support has been very encouraging and comforting. Rebuilding, re-siding and replacing roofs will take time, but for the most part, everyone seems to be safe and that is the bright point.

Keep looking ahead, take it day by day and try to enjoy the rest of the summer!
