Letter about visit to Preston

To the Editor,

My husband and I would like to thank the wonderful people in the Preston area for all their help when our vehicle plus camper broke down a few miles out of Preston. Thank you to the following Good Samaritans: Gary Schmidt for following our camper to Valley View Campground and helping us set up. Your calming words helped us “settle down.” Vicki with Hansen Tires for helping us find a mechanic, taking us to find a rental car, and also hauling our bicycles back to our campground. Scott Brunsvold of Brunsvold Enterprises for renting a car to us. Herm of Herman’s Service of Fountain for towing our pickup from the campground to his shop and for all the work they did in getting our pickup road ready again. What a wonderful gift to the area to have such a quality repair shop...while waiting for our pickup to be fixed, we enjoyed Preston’s local grocery store (more than a few times), the Soup and Sub Shop, your laundromat, antique shop, pharmacy (thank you so much for your help with my subscription), the bowling alley (delicous pancakes), and your local gas stations. A special thank you also to Tom and his family of Valley View Campground for your hospitality and help for the many days that we were there. Preston residents can be very proud of their town and the wonderful goodwill ambassadors that live there. When friends ask us “how was your vacation,” we tell them what a wonderful time we had in Preston.

God’s blessings to all of you,

Jan and Donna Kennedy

Pipestone, MN
