Another tale of people helping people arrived in the WSB inbox this Christmas Day night. Everyone involved had West Seattle ties – but it happened many miles away:
My husband and I, Ric and Diane Ferrero of the Arroyos, wanted to share why we love West Seattleites. On Christmas Day, we were heading back home to West Seattle after spending a couple of days with our grandkids and family in Spokane. Heading over Snoqualmie Pass, chains were required so we pulled over to chain up. There were a lot of cars on the side of the road chaining up before heading over the pass. The guy behind us was done with his and he came over to help us with our chains. He said that he worked for Les Schwab and we asked where and he said he was the manager of the new West Seattle store. He didn’t want any money for his help, just thought he would lend us a hand. We just want to say thank you to our new best friend Chris Ackland, manager of Les Schwab in West Seattle. Here is a picture of Chris and Ric puttng on the chains before we head over the pass. Thanks, Chris!
