Kindness never thawed through snow

Miss-Lou residents continued doing great things in our community last week despite the 2 inches of snow and ice that shut down activity in much of the area.

Before we prepare for the week ahead, let’s look back at some of the highlights from last week:

• The winter weather didn’t stop Tommy, Jay and Jeremy Sanders — and many others like them — from getting out on the icy roads to help stranded motorists. The Sanders men, who work at Miss-Lou Body Shop, drove around helping anyone they saw stuck on the ice free of charge. Such random acts of kindness helped keep our community going last week.

• Members of a local service organization adopted an after-school tutoring center as part of a community project. Members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated Zeta Delta Omega chapter will help tutor students twice a week at the D&J Resource Research Computer Center. We thank the members for giving back to the community.

• Nine Vidalia Junior High School students traveled to perform in a concert at the University of Louisiana-Monroe as part of the Louisiana Music Educators Association District One Junior High School Band. Three of the nine students also placed first chair for their instruments, meaning they scored higher than any other student in the district. We congratulate the students on their success.

Though the snow and ice that fell on our area has melted away, the stories of stranded cars and snowball fights will likely continue as we begin another week in the Miss-Lou. We hope your week is filled with good news for you and your family.
