Thanks to the Good Samaritans in Shaw

“Dear PoPville,

I came home Tuesday night to find a decent sized blaze had taken hold on the pile of leaves that had gathered along my fence (raked on Friday, resistance is futile).

Some good neighbors had already stopped and called the Fire Department when I got there, but I was too consumed with trying to make sure the fire didn’t spread further to get their names.

As Thanksgiving approaches, I’m grateful to live in a neighborhood where people look out for each other. These Good Samaritans will certainly be in our thoughts and my wife and I would like to send them a token of our appreciation.

If you could post this and help connect us, we would greatly appreciate it. Happy Thanksgiving DC!

Warmest Regards,

Inhabitants of the Green Monster, who are also thankful for the fast response of DCFD and MPD.”
