People Raised Their Hands - Hurricane Irma

     I am so proud that my wife, Shelley, did something to help with housing for Irma refugees.  When she heard that millions were trying to escape the potential damage from the storm, I worried ... Shelley acted.  She got the word out that she would be a clearing house for people willing to host storm refugees.

     Shelley developed an excel spreadsheet.  By the time the calls stopped she would have been able to help 80 people find a family to host them here in Transylvania County.

     At the end of the day ... only one family needed housing.  But we both were so touched by the hands that went up to volunteer.  In these discouraging times, it is so heartwarming to know that there are lots of good hearted people willing to extend themselves and take the risk of housing people about which they know almost nothing.  

     I am so glad that 22 years ago we decided to move to Transylvania County.  This is a good place to be ... beautiful surroundings and (most of all) filled with good hearted citizens.

     Thank you to Mayor Harris, the Chamber of Commerce, local hoteliers, and Sheriff Mahoney!  Special thanks to the people of the Sunset Inn.
