To the Editor:
On behalf of the Martin County Area Foundation, we were honored to be invited to witness the awards given to April Poolman, Bruce Saxton, local police officers and Gold Cross responders.
Appreciation goes out to Chief Brolsma for putting this together to hear Walt Anacker's amazing story (Sentinel, March 25).
We also wanted to thank the many donors who helped make it possible to provide the defibrillators to our police department a number of years ago. It is through the work of many organizations, such as Martin County Area Foundation, that make this area such a great place to live and work. Please continue to support these community organizations when asked as you never know when an unexpected benefit can occur from your gift.
