Last Thursday was a very tough day for our little Village, as we laid to rest our own Raelene Schmaltz.
Thank you to all those who helped out that day. The 4H'ers who set up the Community Centre for the luncheon, the CWL for all their work at the luncheon, all those folks who brought in sandwiches or squares, and to the many hundreds of folks who came to support the family at this most difficult time. I know I've missed some individual or group, but know that your contribution made Thursday just a bit easier for Raelene's family and our village.
A special thanks go to members of the media for maintaining a low profile on Thursday. I and many others were especially grateful for that.
Thursday was a sad day I hope our little village won't ever have to repeat. It's time to move on, but please remember to support Raelene's family and friends in the weeks and months to come.
And look after yourself!
