Shipman resident, Michelle Verity took a break from her in home childcare work to bring a little good cheer to community members, those who are continuing to serve others during these unprecedented times. ️
It all began with combining the love of baking with the appreciation for people who continue to go to work each day to support the needs of others. ️
Let’s begin with the most incredible ladies who serve our children every day. The cafeteria staff at Shipman prepare meals each day for students. These meals are distributed to students throughout the Southwestern region. Featured here are Dawn Ansell, Tammy Graham, and Sheila Thornton, Shipman Food Service Professionals. Big thanks to them and Diane Milner who took the photo. They continue to serve our children daily! So here's a GREAT BIG SHOUT OUT to ALL food service workers who continue to prepare and serve meals for our kiddos! We are so grateful for you!
Our AWESOME Marathon service station mechanic, Kevin Praither also continues to serve others, providing the best service to the community. From oil changes to fixes to our automobiles, Kevin is a community gem who remains open for service. Prior to COVID 19, the Marathon station was the gathering place for community greats to gather and solve the world's problems. It will be that again - SOON!
We also appreciate having Pammy’s in town where one can pick up products from a gallon of milk to a fountain soda or even a six pack of your beverage of choice. It's the convenient quick stop shop for local residents or even those passing through our GREAT small town of Shipman!
So thankful for our farmers and those who serve them, from the incredible employees at CHS (Shipman Elevator) to the fab John Deere employees, like Dave Nord. Meeting the basic needs of humankind requires food! Thus, a BIG TIME THANK YOU goes out to our farming community!
While our world seems to be put on hold due to unprecedented circumstances brought on by COVID 19, many continue to do good work, providing exemplary service to their community. It's always nice to celebrate people. Reflecting on the good that others continue to bring to our communities is important. Big THANKS to Michelle for combining baking skills with gratitude to share a little love with others!
