Credit to the Arbor Vitae Fire Dept.

June 19, 2020

To the Editor:

There are heroes among us who put on the uniform of helpers wherever and whenever called. In this case it was men from the Arbor Vitae Fire Department who found us adrift on the channel to Lake Tomahawk, our boat engine having quit.

Admittedly, their uniforms last Sunday were swimming suits since they were boating with family, but that didn’t stop them from towing us safely to our pier where they performed an amazing maneuver with ropes to bring us along on one side of the pier with them on the other side, all the while giving friendly encouragement. As they left they didn’t want their names mentioned, but to give the credit to the Arbor Vitae Fire Department, which we are more than happy to do! God bless them, everyone!

Jerry and Sauntra Loar
