Fortunate to live here

Dear Editor,

I feel so very fortunate to live in this community where when someone needs assistance there are those who step forward with a helping hand. I managed to get my car stuck in the sand when I was on the way to watch the fireworks in Port St. Joe on July 4. My friend, who was with me, called her husband to see if he would help get us out. Before her husband arrived, Vince Everett, who is with the Port St. Joe Police Department but was off duty at the time, asked if we needed help and we said we did but that someone was coming. Mr. Everett said he had his truck and strap near and would be right back. When Jeff Wood arrived, he and Mr. Everett pushed my car out of the sand. I truly appreciate that those two men took time from their busy lives to help get my car back on the road again.
