Vail Daily letter: Why I love this community
Vail, CO, Colorado
Turns out, I had dropped my red bank pouch on a recent morning in the parking lot of where I work, The Avon Pet Centre. I realized this many hours later and was just beside myself when I realized it was gone.
At about 3:30 p.m., a gentleman walked into my shop and asked if I was “The Foxy Hound,” and I just knew he had my cash and checks. He said, “I think I have something that belongs to you,” and I just couldn’t believe it!
My pouch had over $600 in checks and over $700 in cash. Not a penny was missing!
I gave this guy a hug that seriously squeezed the life out of him and then I had to seriously force him to take a reward.! I didn’t even get his name, but I will, he works for Thule Electronics, and I will get his name.
Thank you, sir. Thank you for being the awesome person who found my wages and returned them to me. I’ll never forget you! Never!
Participate in The Longevity Project
The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.
I also want to thank Weez at KZYR “The Zypher” radio station. I sent him a fax about my loss, and they were so quick to get it on the air. What a community!
I just love this valley! We are a big resort, known all around the world, but when we need our “family” to help on a small matter, well, everyone came together! Even all my workmates hustled to do everything they could.. My loss was first priority. Thank you, Dr. Katz, Jeff, Matthew and Keith. Thank you all!
