The O’Briens and Greenlees were enjoying their usual Friday night at Compo Beach last week.
Nearby, a couple struggled to put up an umbrella.
The O’Briens and Greenlees did not notice.
But Midge Deverin — sitting at a different table — did.
She told her husband Bernie. He walked over, dug a hole and secured the post with sand and rocks.”
Bernie Deverin to the rescue!Sure, it’s a small gesture. But Bernieand Midge could have ignored the strangers. Their struggle with the umbrella was not his.
Instead, he took a few minutes to help. It’s little things like this that make all the difference — and that make Westport a community.
