Our family feels privileged and honored to live in Southampton, whose community is truly extraordinary. First and foremost, we would like to express our appreciation for the heroic efforts of the volunteer firemen of North Sea and our neighboring towns for their courageous efforts to tame the fire at our home on December 22.
Secondly, it was remarkable how the Southampton School District teachers, administrators, and other staff jumped the minute they learned of our misfortune, offering their homes, home cooked meals, clothes, and anything else they could think of.
Thirdly, the members of the Jewish Center of the Hamptons made certain that our children were able to celebrate Hanukkah and learn the importance of giving.
Finally, we never fully realized the strength of the bonds of friendship and caring within the Southampton community. At this time, we certainly want to express our heartfelt appreciation to all of our friends and colleagues. We wish the members of our community a happy and healthy New Year.
