LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Roof fund-raising a success


The Williston area is such a generous community! The art sale held two weeks ago raised $1,500—some buyers saw the notice in the Observer (“Art sale fundrasier,” Sept. 19) and one person made an anonymous gift. When added to other financial donations, the funding for roof repairs was reached. The single mom, supporting three while fighting cancer, just called to say the roof was done. “I’m speechless. I’ve been crying all day.” She added that, as the two roofers pounded nails at their own speed, her daughter had shouted up, “Get the rhythm, boys! Get the rhythm.”

Thank you so much for answering the need.

    I take frequent walks in my neighborhood and surrounding sidewalks/roads on Industrial Avenue and Rt 2-A and occasionally see what appears to be a dog-poop bag, nicely tied, but simply left there in the road or on the sidewalk. I would like to remind dog-walkers that this is not appropriate. Please carry it off.

    Thank you for meeting your legal responsibilities.
