Congratulations and a huge thank you for being volunteers in the community go out this week to the Hammonds family of Grays River. Tom Hammonds was named lieutenant with the Grays River Volunteer Fire Department last Thursday evening. Tom is also an EMT and was one of the first responders when my husband had his stroke more than a year ago now. Recently Tom’s wife Tina and his son Thomas received their EMT certifications as well. It’s wonderful to see such a commitment to our community, and I am especially proud because they are my cousins and have chosen to make this community their own in a very generous and special way, by serving all of us. Thank you so much. You make our family very proud.
