Thank you for a clean yard

Send a link to a friend

To the editor:

We would like to take this time to thank the 20 or so Lincoln College students who came to our house to rake our yard.

Last Saturday, while it was cold and windy, the students spent about 30 minutes raking the entire yard. They could have been in bed sleeping in on the weekend, but instead they came to our house to provide a wonderful service to my husband and me.

The maintenance staff then came and transported all of the leaves away from the curb.

The college and their students were gracious, polite and worked very hard. They not only did my house but several others as well.

I wish to thank them all for the great job they did!

In appreciation,

Harold and Joyce Seelye
