Opinion: Thank you to Summerton community for help after car problem


On Thursday, April 18, my family and I were driving from New York to Florida. A problem with our car left us alone in the middle of the Summerton community. We were more than blessed to meet Ellen Ardis (pro-tem mayor) as well as the Hill family. Barbara, daughter Gabby and husband Art Hill (Sumter Parks and Recreation director) all took extremely amazing care of my family and I! Ellen secured a hotel room, while Barbara and Gabby bought our family dinner and Art drove my family and I nearly 50 miles to try and secure a rental car. All out of the goodness of their hearts! We are so thankful for the amazing people that we met from your town and feel that everyone should know what great people we encountered. Thank you again and a very special thank you to Art!
