To the Editor:

I LOVE THIS COMMUNITY!

Thank you all for your offers to help restore the Johnny Miles Promotional & Storage Trailer that was vandalized last week. So many people reached out to us, which was so amazing.

I am happy to report that the trailer has been restored. While we were all busy enjoying our long weekend, Brandon Roy, paint rep for Eastern Canada for DuPont, and local triathlete and Clint Snell, owner of Pictou County Cycle and local triathlete, spent the day Sunday cleaning the graffiti off the trailer.

They did this without being asked and they did an excellent job, you can’t even tell where the paint was.

In return, they wanted NOTHING.

We always said the community takes real ownership in our event series but this effort and the outpouring of support from the community goes above and beyond and this is why we do what we do for our community. Thank you Brandon and Clint, once again showing us that you are more than athletes and business people, you are true community ambassadors.
