I'd like to thank Rose Harper and Gary Rains, partners at ERA Realty in Strawberry, for putting on their annual Halloween costume contest for the children of Pine and Strawberry. As a parent, I love the fact that every child is a winner. Rose and Gary give an envelope with a couple of dollars inside, as well as a goody bag filled with candy to every single child who shows up to the event. I am sure it all adds up quickly, and I appreciate the fact they are spending their own money for decorations, cookies, hot cocoa and prizes on our kids.
While it's true that real estate agents can make a good living in the Rim Country selling homes, there's nothing that says they must be generous with their earnings. We are fortunate to have many people here who feel a strong sense of community in Pine and Strawberry and do "give back." Thanks again, Rose and Gary, for making it a fun night for our kids.
