I would like to apologize to Macey’s Food and Drug for forgetting to recognize them in the “Community Thank You” advertisement that ran last Thursday in the Transcript Bulletin. Macey’s was the first store I called on as part of recovery efforts after the July 19 fire. The manager, Sam Grant, immediately responded with a generous supply of food for the disaster relief workers. Sometimes we might not notice the gracious attitudes of the companies and people in this community. But as I have been involved with the recovery efforts of the fire victims, I have seen, and continue to see, a community that unselfishly and demonstrably gives to many who lost everything but their lives on that tragic night. I am proud to call this community my community. Thank you again to Macey’s and all the companies and individuals in Tooele who step up to help those in need.
