Why Ponoka is the place to live

Reader thankful for help during and after the tornado touch down

Dear Editor,

After the events of June 30, 2016, we would like to thank everyone who stepped up and helped us in so many ways. We do not have the words to describe how thankful we are to have the best neighbors anyone could hope for, especially the Millers who had our house safe and secure with the help of the Ponoka Fire Department before we were even able to return home to survey the damage.

The offers of help and support from so many people around us has touched us every day. Thankfully, no one was hurt by Mother Nature and the damage is being repaired with the help of a great insurance agency that was there that evening to get things on the go.

It is actions like these that still make us believe that Ponoka is still the only place we want to live.

Sincerely

Doreen & Jerry Siemens
