This letter has come into being because of the pendant Dick Wolfe donated to the Optimist Club Kid's Fishing Festival silent auction. It absolutely took my breath away because of its beauty.
Then, I started thinking about what I know about Dick Wolfe. Though I do not know him personally, I have read about him and observed him during the nine years I have lived in Payson.
As I have been saddened by the magnitude of negative letters to all the papers, this man gave me a reason to write about someone who has consistently displayed positive and strong leadership during his years on the Town Council. He seems to always be involved in a community project, has encouraged local artists and is helping to bring life to Main Street and, in turn, Payson, via Artists of the Rim Gallery.
We are fortunate to have Dick Wolfe in our community. To me, he is a role model of sharing leadership, talent and love of community.
