    I would like to take this opportunity to offer a great thanks for a wonderful act of kindness.

    I am the manager for the CarePlus Program at Rutland Area Visiting Nurse Association and Hospice. Care Plus provides in-home services to individuals residing in Rutland County, Dorset and Rupert.

    In order to provide these services, our home care aides, regardless of the weather, travel throughout the area. On Feb. 28, one of my aides was attempting to get to a clientís home, the client lives on a back road in Shrewsbury. The road was snow covered and a crusty layer of ice had formed over the top, making traveling conditions extremely poor. Hitting a patch of ice, our aide went off the road. There was no cell service at her vehicle so she walked a distance in order to call the office and a tow truck.

    When she returned to her car, two gentlemen came along in a red truck and offered to assist her. As another aide was leaving the house, she, too, got stuck. The same two men were driving by and pulled this aide out, as well. Again, I would like to thank Montana and Jeremiah from Shrewsbury Farm and Property Management. Your kindness and help made a bad situation better. Thank you again.
