Thank you Gilford, what a wonderful community you have

To The Daily Sun,

I brought my family to Gunstock Ski Area this past Sunday, where we had the great experience of working with Dave and Emily of Lakes Region Disabled Sports. They helped our son enjoy his first skiing lesson, where he excelled with their help.

On the way out of the area, the roads suddenly froze. Someone had come out of their home to warn oncoming traffic of the three-car accident that had already occurred. I put on my brakes, but the road was slick and frictionless, I was barely able to avoid a car and crashed into a snowbank instead. Thankfully no one was hurt.

AAA was unable to help us, but thankfully some Good Samaritans in the town of Gilford were able to pull us free with the help of a pickup truck and five people pushing and guiding us out.

We were unable to leave that day due to the poor weather, but were very happy to have found lodging at the TownePlace Suites in Gilford. We also had wonderful service at both the Lyon's Den and Wendy's restaurants in Gilford and my family truly appreciates the hospitality we were shown by everyone.

I wanted to extend my thanks once again and commend you on your wonderful town.

Kevin Hebert
Brimfield, Mass.
