Rachel Parker Dickerson reports in the Log Cabin newspaper out of Conway, Ark., how 700 pounds of tornado relief donations from the very generous people of Medway, Mass., traveled 1,500 miles by recreation vehicle to central Arkansas.
In this good news article, Dickerson writes: “John Albers of Russellville and his wife Linda recently traveled to Medway, Mass., to purchase a used RV. The previous owner, Susan Wood, had heard about the April 27 tornado and asked Albers if he lived in the community that suffered damage. When he said he lived nearby, she offered to collect supplies if he would deliver them. He agreed, and she responded by holding a drive in her community that collected 700 pounds of donations to fill up the RV’s six storage compartments.”

Very cool story — especially since John Albers was in the office next to me when we both worked at Arkansas Nuclear One, near Russellville.
