Spread the Love – Sevier Co. Linemen

February is the month of love and I am visiting a different community group every day to thank them for the wonderful work that they are doing.

With last weekend’s weather, I felt that day 28 of #spreadthelove was a good time to thank the Sevier County Electric Company linemen for working for us day or night (sometimes day AND night) to restore our power.
Send them or your local electric company’s linemen some love at www.sces.net by letting them know what a great job they’re doing in any weather to get our power back on.

I didn’t get to speak with them directly but am told they enjoyed the balloons, thank you card, and the bag of candy bars I left for them. I have a feeling that if I asked them how we can help make their job a little easier, they would tell us to cut our trees under and near our power lines (or at least allow them to be cut by the utility companies), and as a balloon decorator I have to add: don’t release balloons because they can get tangled in power lines and cause outages.

This is my last #spreadthelove delivery for now, because it’s the last day of February. I plan on doing these videos a few times a month from now on, so stay tuned – and don’t forget to let me know who to visit next!

Spread the Love – Sevier County Humane Society

February is the month of love and I am visiting a different community group every day to thank them for the wonderful work that they are doing.
My family loves animals, so on day 27 of #spreadthelove we were a little distracted by the cute and adoptable pets at the Sevier County Humane Society. Sable and Ruby are so smart & sweet – It was very hard for my my daughter (who takes these videos) to not take them home to with us. Send some love to the Sevier County Humane Society staff and volunteers, tell them what a great job they are doing for the animals, bring them some treats (for humans or pets – either will be appreciated!), and find yourself a new furry family member that will give you unconditional love.

Spread the Love – Rescue Squad

February is the month of love and I am visiting a different community group every day to thank them for the wonderful work that they are doing.

Day 17 of #spreadthelove is at the #seviercounty #volunteer #rescuesquad.

Wow I learned so much talking with these guys, I’m so impressed by their incredible commitment when they choose to volunteer there! That’s a part-time job AND they are ALWAYS on standby!

They take care of the whole county! Send them some love, show them your #appreciation, tell them #thankyou for doing a fantastic job.

Spread the Love – Fire Department

February is the month of love and I am visiting a different community group every day to thank them for the wonderful work that they are doing.

Day 16 of #spreadthelove is at the Northview-Kodak Fire Department in Kodak. Dan & JD are such great guys, please show them and their teams your #support: send them some good comments, and most importantly by PULLING OVER TO THE RIGHT TO help them SAVE LIVES!!

#Firefighters and all #firstresponders are my personal #heroes because I wouldn’t be alive without them. I just can’t believe they still have to tell people to pull over when their lights are flashing!
