Verleen Tucker: Sincere thank you

I am a UPS driver who delivers in South Routt. This includes the towns of Oak Creek, Phippsburg, Yampa and Toponas. Each year at this time, I’m faced with the daunting challenge of an overwhelming number of holiday deliveries and countless miles of driving, more than I can possibly manage in one day. Here is my sincere thank you the owners and employees of Bonfiglio Drug, Montgomery General Merchandise, the Toponas Country General Store and Spiro’s Trading Post, who allow me to leave packages at their businesses for people who live in remote locations. And to the countless people who live in the country, too numerous to name, who approach me every day and offer to take packages for their neighbors, making certain that Santa Claus reaches all areas near and far. The Christmas spirit is alive and well in South Routt, and I am humbled and uplifted to be a witness to generous hearts of its residents.
