Just got my WAYNEDALE NEWS. Your article, Mae, was the most perfect gift you could ever give. It reminds me again of what I want Christmas to be – and even if it is not, all I will have to do is pull out your column again and reread it to bring back my spirit. I luv ya bunches dear heart. Merry Christmas from this heart of mine to that heart of yours. Your friendship is always the best gift I could ever receive.

To: Waynedale News – Editor

An open letter of thanks to Marty Jasper, manager of the Hideaway Bar & Grill, 6800 Elzey Street, Al Such, Waynedale resident, and the many, many un-named and unselfish patrons and donors who were responsible for a generous cash donation to the Officers and firefighters assigned to Engine House #5, 5801 Bluffton Road (next door to the former Standard Federal Bank).

The firefighters at #5 are sworn to protect life and property here in the Waynedale community. Many of us who work at #5, either live in this area, or have close ties to it. And we know many of you. We too were affected by the tragedy of the 9/11/01 attack and we can sincerely appreciate you thinking of us.

May St. Florian, the patron Saint of firemen, guard and protect you.


Captain Brad Springer

Engine House #5, C-shift

5801 Bluffton Road.
