A local businesswoman has found a big way to say ‘thank you’ to the many volunteers with Mennonite Disaster Services (MDS).
Jackie Hilton owns Auto Tac and one of her specialties is making signs.
Hilton produced two vinyl signs, one for her store window on Vermilion Avenue and one she donated to hang on Fenchurch Avenue, which is central to the MDS service area.
“I just think they really need to know how much we appreciate them,” said Hilton, who has two friends who have homes that are being rebuilt by the volunteers.
In total, they are working on 43 houses that were damaged by the November flood, and nine of those are complete rebuilds.
MDS arrived two weeks after the flood and will continue to work in town until the end of May.
