LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Heartfelt thank you to local volunteers

Laurie and I are so grateful for the fire fighting efforts that saved our home while the rest of the ranch burned out of control until fire lines and extreme effort brought it to a stop. The firefighters came from Florida, Wisconsin and New Jersey; but we are particularly grateful for our Sweet Grass County volunteer fire fighters.  For us, being among friends, neighbors and local people we hadn’t met and who were doing everything in their power to help us was simply unforgettable.  It was a feeling of support and community that seems especially perishable in this divisive age.  I hope we hang onto it and remember how we look after one another when the chips are down.

With gratitude,

Tom McGuane, Big Timber
