Thank you so much for being so wonderfully supportive today! You really managed to turn a very trying situation around and made a huge difference in Glenn and Reid’s day. It is also a perfect reminder of community.
So, if you have no idea what I am referring to: Mass Pike was already backed up this am (Friday) due to a truck fire. But then there was a horrible accident in Grafton and this stopped traffic for over an hour. Glenn called me and relayed some of what was going on and once he saw the accident was very upset, with no real enthusiasm for anything, but especially not for arriving to market almost an hour after opening time and trying to set up everything. He also said that he tried to impress the idea upon Reid that what was so very important was they were safe and sound and should turn their thought to the victims of the accidents. Amen to that.
I had emailed our membership asking for help setting up or to come later and to Glenn’s amazement, there were lots of people there, ready to pitch in, unload the truck, set up the market and, in general, lend a hand. He also said his loyal customers were waiting for him when he arrived, knowing he would be there. It sounds like a beautiful moment and I know Glenn was not only greatly relieved, but quite moved at the effort.
Thank you and be safe.
