When an alert “06880” reader recommends someone as an Unsung Hero, I pay attention.
When 2 alert readers make the same recommendation on the same day, I start writing.
Last week — the day before the snow — both Joelle Malec and Michael Ryan noticed the same thing. Joelle says:
I often walk around the Saugatuck River. I always think that some day I should bring bags and pick out the trash from our river’s banks.
Well, some day was today for this woman. On her own she’d filled half a dozen bags, because she couldn’t stand to run by the trash one more day!
I stopped, thanked her and hugged her for doing such a great thing.
She allowed me to take her picture, but did not want me to share her name for “06880”‘s Unsung Heroes.
She is my hero today!
