A thank you to a stranger

On Saturday morning, May 19th, I was driving up Mill Street heading for the Almonte Farmers Market. The Bridge Street traffic light turned red, so I stopped. A light-coloured van or truck pulled up on my right. The male driver rolled down his window and called out to me, “You’ve lost your wheel cover, and it’s now in front of the Bank of Montreal.”

I acknowledged the driver’s comment, the light turned green, and I proceeded on my way. Later on, I discovered my wheel cover propped up right outside the bank, just as the man had said.

I’d like to extend my thanks and appreciation to this person, who is unknown to me. What a heart-warming experience! It proves, once again, that Almonte is indeed the “Friendly Town”.

All the best to my unknown benefactor—

Maureen McVey
