A helping hand

This morning I took a load of cardboard from our condo complex to the Juneau Recycling Center. As I began to carry the cardboard and paper into the center, two complete strangers - a man and a woman - came over

 

and asked they could help. I said “Sure.” The two of them were a great help.

So to whomever you are, “Thank you very much.”

It is little things like this that have made me not only happy but also

proud, to be a resident of Juneau.

We may not have all the amenities facilities and attraction that larger

urban centers have, but we sure seem to have some really good neighbors.

Wally Olson, Auke Bay
