Because of them, there was light

To the editor:

The Rotary Motto is Service about self, and last week we watched this motto practiced in real life.

When the ice storm of 2009 hit this area and several of us were without electric, our utility crews were working around the clock to help us. The members of these crews sacrificed their families, health and sleep to help restore our power. They worked in less then desirable weather conditions of snow, freezing rain, ice, wind and temperatures around zero. Most utility employees were putting in 16-plus hour days just to help their neighbors.

We recognize their effort by flipping the light switch and the lights actually coming on in our warm homes.

The Rotary Club would like to say “Thank You” to all the utility employees for a job well done and acknowledge the sacrifices you made for this community

Thank you once again,

The Bedford Rotary Club
