Thank you, Silverton: Guest Opinion

November 2018 Posted in Community

Never before have I sent a letter to the editor, but the true kindess and caring showed to us when our RV broke down just below the Reinhart Farm has us left with a grateful heart at the true kindness and caring from strangers in the town of Silverton.

When on our maiden voyage in our “new” used RV, we became stranded in the middle of the road, within 20 minutes Jan and Cindy pulled over and towed us up to the next level spot off the road. The Reinhart Farm.

Truly stranded and facing [a] $750 bill to tow home. Thankfully, Abram is very mechanical and between his father and himself devised what it may be. Ignition module. Well, the kind Don and Norma welcomed us to stay at their property and take us back to town the next morning to get the part. Just beware of the elk herd running in the night.

So we settled in for a star filled night looking out over the valley below. Beautiful. Stunning. And those elk did run – amazing, around our RV, a site we will never forgt. Just like the dear hearts of Don and Norma and the helpful men at the Napa.

After the part was purchased, the RV [was] fixed in ten minutes. We are forever grateful for Silverton and genuinely caring of its town.

Lisa and Abram Olson
