Sylvan has incredible people; thanks

I was reminded of the amazing people we have here in Sylvan Lake on Saturday.

Dear Editor,

I was reminded of the amazing people we have here in Sylvan Lake on Saturday.

While driving to Edmonton with a girl friend and three children I got a flat tire. We were about halfway to Edmonton. Deb and I tried to start to change the tire while my kids waved down a vehicle to help.

It felt like 100 drivers sped by us — some not even moving over to the fast lane. It was dangerous and getting cold when a red truck stopped to help us.

Of all the motorists on the road Rob and Denielle Snelgrove from Sylvan Lake stopped to help us. Yes our good samaritans were also residents of Sylvan Lake! They delayed their anniversary getaway to help us.

Rob changed my tire while Denielle took all my kids and safely placed them in her truck until we were safe to travel again. I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank Rob and Denielle for their kindness and muscles!

This is a good reminder that Sylvan Lake has incredible people. Please take the time to be kind to one another and pay it forward, I will be!

Melissa Rayner,

Sylvan Lake
