Our community

To the Editor,
   It is a rare thing to see a community come together, as our Madras churches did this last Saturday. I was blessed to be the clinic coordinator for the medical portion of the event and it is my joy to express our thanks to the people who made our day a success.
   Special thanks to Jeanne and her staff at Hometown Drugstore for your amazing donation of equipment, medicines, time and support. To our medical providers and nurses, Sydney, Jennifer, Sharon, Ken, and Jenny, your generous spirit made me proud! Thanks also to the Central Oregon Veterans Outreach, who brought the awesome mobile medical units and inspired us with your heart for the homeless and veterans.
   In a time when our nation is struggling, isn't it great to see what can happen when selflessness and compassion fuels just ordinary folks to do something extraordinary!
   With heartfelt gratitude.
