Letter: Our hometown heroes
To the Editors:
For many years, replacing the sinks in the children’s bathrooms at Zion’s Hill Preschool Program was top of the wish list. As we all know, “need to do’s” often take the place of “nice to haves,” and each year found our resources devoted to a more pressing project. The sinks were original to the building, and the faucets were not easy for little hands to manipulate. We finally decided to take on the project, fully expecting the labor costs to be significant. Then we met local plumbers John Fairchild and Gary Brown. As they were explaining all the work that had to be done, we were concerned our budget would be blown out of the water!
That changed one morning when Gary called and told us that he and John wanted to donate the labor for our project. We were speechless, and overwhelmed by their generosity. Gary and John planned out the project, had us buy the materials, and they replaced all the sinks and faucets over the holiday break. The teachers, children and parents all returned to school in January so excited with the renovation! The teachers have commented on how much easier it is for the children to wash their hands now, making for quick and efficient bathroom breaks and more time for the great learning that takes place within Zion’s Hill Preschool Program’s walls.
Coincidentally, during the time of our plumbing project, John’s support for the Wilton Volunteer Ambulance Corps was featured in The Bulletin (http://bit.ly/1O6bagF). We are so grateful for the help Gary and John provided our school, and as a token of our appreciation Zion’s Hill Preschool Program has made a donation to the Wilton Volunteer Ambulance Corps in memory of John’s father, Russell Fairchild. Both Gary and John were so easy and wonderful to work with, we strongly recommend them for all of your plumbing needs!
