Why I painted the SAD 44 bus garage
To the Editor:
I would like to thank SAD 44 and the people of Bethel for giving Clean Cut Painting the opportunity to donate services in painting the bus garage and more importantly the freedom to letter the building as my wonderful mother Jewel did. (Thank you, Mom).
Many people have asked me why I wanted to invest in such a project, so here is a short explanation for them.
I do quite a bit of traveling by vehicle. On occasion, I enter a new town and see representation, and support, for the local school painted on a water tower or oil storage tank and instantly I have a warm first impression. Seeing this small town spirit made me want to do the same for our great town and school -- a town and school that has so much to be proud of but at times doesn't show enough pride; a community that so many people desire to move to, yet so many that already live here take for granted, myself included.
So now I was armed with an idea on how I could give some thanks to a place that I am very fortunate to call home and the ability to make it happen because of my profession. The only thing missing was the building to make it happen on.
That's where Dr. Murphy, James Doar, Ronnie Deegan, and the school board were receptive in allowing my thoughts to become a reality. I hope it has the same affect on others as they enter our town as it did on me when I entered theirs.
