Community spirit lives on

To the Editor:

My eyes teared and I felt a tug of my heart as I read the ‘Habitat house takes shape in Falls’ article in the Oct. 20 Sheboygan Falls News.

I grew up in Sheboygan Falls from my birth in 1925 through the 1950s. No matter where I have lived since, it has always been the favorite town in my life.

I had two parents who taught each of their five daughters the joy of sharing, which prepared us for our visits to the outside world.

As a child and growing up in that dear town, I saw the acts of kindness bestowed upon others, such as shoveling a neighbor’s walk after a snowstorm or a surprise cutting of a neighbor’s lawn.

What a joy to see that this wonderful town has not lost its humanity or helpfulness. It is so great to see these high school boys come to the aid of a family in such a manner. These young men probably have no idea the feeling of warmness and thankfulness that have given to the people of Sheboygan Falls and the world.

They have made the word of the poet come alive as written.

“There is a destiny that makes us brothers none shall go on alone. All that you put into the lives of others comes back into your own.”

I thank all that helped with the Habitat for Humanity house project from the bottom of my heart and may you never lose this gift. I am so proud of each and every person that helped with the project. These efforts are most appreciated and I am so happy to have seen this in my lifetime.
