To the Editor:

Another reason why I appreciate living in Athens. The community once again revealed its compassionate and generous side and made contributions to the former Athenians (Chris Phillips, Gabe Chalfant, Kim Sands and Brittany Bentivegna) who lost everything in a house fire over the July 4th weekend. The compassion and kindness of the community and Ohio Brew Week Director Brandon Thompson shows clearly why Athens is such a grand, small town. As one bar owner replied, when asked if we could place a donation box in his bar: “Absolutely. That’s what we do around here.” All of this reaffirms what I’ve always believed about Athens – a town with heart.
