Letter to the Editor: Decorah is a caring community

Posted: Mon, Mar 2, 2020 3:06 PM

(The following Letter to the Editor has been submitted by Susan Wood of Decorah):

"A few Saturdays ago, I participated in a bake sale at my workplace benefiting a co-worker who has been diagnosed with cancer.

We went in early Saturday morning to set it up and were completely amazed by the willingness of others to bring baked goods for the sale.  We had hundreds of baked items, and a couple of local businesses chipped in as well.  We were swamped with customers, not only buying baked goods, but contributing money for the cause.  As fast as we brought out new items to sell, people were buying them!

We live in a wonderful community where people pull together when there is a need. The overwhelming generosity for what started out to be a little bake sale was absolutely heart-warming.  You could truly feel God's presence.

Don't ever forget how blessed we are to live in a small town with such caring people."
