When I stopped in Town Hall today to touch base, the heat was naturally a part of our discussion. Sadly, I was told of a citizen who left her dog outside and forgot about it and without water or shade, her elderly canine succumbed to heat stroke and died.
This heat wave has been deadly across the country and we don’t want to have any of our citizens to have to endure difficulties or risks. Mike Moses, the pastor of Lake Forest Church contacted town officials” “If you become aware there is a need for citizens with no air conditioning, particularly the elderly, to have a cool place to spend the afternoons today through Monday, please let me know. I will gladly open the lobby and cafe areas of Lake Forest Church on gilead road, and host people. From noon to 6 or 7pm.
This is my email, and my cell number is 704-582-3486
It often rolls off my tongue that Forbes Magazine named Huntersville as the second best place in America to relocate.
When Forbes makes the list for the most caring citizens in America, I am confident we will be in the top spot.
