Letter to the Editor: Thanks to Rangely young men who helped elderly resident

Dear Editor:
This note of recognition is for the charitable contribution and efforts of five young men who helped a local resident improve his property.

The town would like to provide special recognition to Brennan Noyes, Marshall Webber, Caleb Noel, Austin Ficken and Lane Gillard for the work they did on June 26 and 27.
These five young men stepped in on short notice to help a local senior citizen struggling with a monumental task. The owner had been out of state for the past six months and the work he needed to complete on his property was significant. Compounding this was the difficulty of the task and the extreme heat.
Vicki Pfennig, Rangely’s code enforcement officer, initially saw the need and took the ball and ran with it by helping to organize the support provided by Brennan, Marshall, Caleb, Austin and Lane.
After discussing this property owner’s challenge, these local youths from the Grace Baptist Church congregation volunteered to step up and dedicate the better part of Friday and Saturday assisting this resident as they worked to reclaim his property from the weeds and refuse.
Thank you goes out to these young men for a great job and for caring for those in need!
Frank Huitt
Mayor
Town of Rangely
