Scott's Thank You and Award Note

Scott’s Thank You and Award Note

Once upon a time in the Woods just beyond the Bridge a giant bug attacked Mr. I Mac and almost zapped the very life out of him.  He no longer had beautiful colors or made any sound…there was only a pale white face with no other sign of life.  Mr. I Mac’s town was devastated and the people began searching for the cure that would bring their beloved friend back to health.  The people prayed for healing.  They checked their connection with their Great Power Source.  They searched all over the Metropolis for the cure that would revive their beloved Mr. I Mac.

Finally, a very wise man, a disciple of MAC told them about Scott, the gifted Computer Wizard who had much experience dealing with the tragic results of this particular kind of bug bite.  So they followed the wise man’s directions to the special laboratory of Scott hidden deep within the forest.

After listening to their pleas for help, Scott applied his special knowledge and skill.  He laid his hands on I Mac and fed him special Apples for three days.

Then…Hooray!  Mr. I Mac was cured.  His color was restored.  He began gurgling a symphony of sounds!  The people thanked Scott, the Computer Wizard and gave him the highest award in the land and knighted him Sir Scott, Community Hero.   (And Trish was able to Blog once again!) 

  • Do you know a Hero in your community that provides an outstanding service?

  • Have you thought of a way to acknowledge the special giftedness of someone who has improved the neighborhood in some way?

  • Is there someone in your neighborhood who would be worthy of the Community Hero Award?
