I would like to say “thank you” for some help I received the other day. My car quit while I was driving and rolled to a spot near the Model Airplane Airport in Turtle Township. Two gentlemen, Larry and Max, went above and beyond with their help, and I wanted to thank them. They would not accept payment for their help. They also told us about their model airplane hobby. These two gentlemen were humble but inspiring. They showed what we all should be doing—caring for our fellow human beings. They saw a need and did what they could to help. If it wasn’t for Model Airplane Airport being located in Turtle Township, my story might have ended quite differently. Thank you Turtle Township for allowing this model airplane location to be in existence. A special thank you to Mary Risseeuw from Clinton, who also came to my rescue.
