Here at Lehman’s, we’re taking stock of things and doing some last-minute preparations as Hurricane Sandy drifts closer to the Ohio Valley and Great Lakes region. All of us have seen the pictures and video of the flooding and damage on the East Coast, and we’re praying for the safety of those affected by this mega-storm.
We would encourage those who are in safer places to consider helping out. Many organizations are putting together blood drives, food and clothing drives and other things that will help those devastated by the storm. Look around in your community and see where you can be of help.
On February 28, 2011, we found that a flash flood had swept through our retail store, and through downtown Kidron. In the hours that followed, friends, employees, and neighbors turned out to help us sort, clean and take stock. Their help was invaluable, and we couldn’t have done it without them. We’ll always be grateful for those helping hands.
No matter where we live during this hurricane, we are all, in a greater sense, neighbors. And neighbors help each other out. It’s how we do things here in Kidron, and how we’ve always done them. Stay safe, and we’ll see you soon.
