It’s Thanksgiving and it seems an appropriate time to say “thank you” to the Vandalia Police Department.
Leaving Vandalia to take a friend home this fall (after eating beans and cornbread at the Grande Levée), my car stalled. It was dark and I panicked – not remembering even how to turn my emergency lights on. I flashed my flashlight to be seen by passing motorists, and I called 911.
The young man who came to my rescue – his name is Emerick – was so kind and helpful. He called the towing company for me, took my friend home, waited with me until the car was towed and took me home.
How blessed we are in Vandalia!
