I would like to express my sincere gratitude and thank everyone who participated in the appreciation dinner put on at North Waterford recently.
I am a quiet sort of guy who just likes a handshake and a “thank you” for my volunteering efforts. I never expected such a large turnout and the overwhelming support along my road to recovery. On May 14, I fell from a ladder, suffering a concussion, 14 broken ribs, broken sternum and three fractured vertebrae in my back.
It has been a long two and one-half months of recovery, with 80 percent of my time reclined or in bed and that brace I have to wear is not the most comfortable piece of apparel in my wardrobe.
I hope to shed the brace in a couple of weeks and get a lot more of my strength back with daily exercise (without the brace, exercise would be a lot more tolerable).
Thank you to all the businesses, organizations, friends and relatives who worked hard to make it all possible. Your generosity just leaves me speechless.
Al Fox, Stoneham
