A Special Crossing Guard

Brad Curtis is a local crossing guard in Jersey shore.  He is a retired contractor.  He loves to help the children. He says it keeps him young.  But that is not who gets all the attention at this cross street.  It is his helper, Patches , the crossing guard dog. They love how cute the dog is with the stop sign jacket that he wears.  He is very well trained.  When Brad brought along little Patches they all said that the dog needed a uniform also.  The kids just love the dog and the neighborhood think that he is just the perfect addition to the neighborhood.  Anything that will help the children follow the rules helps.  They all love watching the dog and he loves the children.  Thank you Mr. Curtis for bringing Patches to help you.  Of course, Patches will only be on duty until the weather changes.  When it gets cold, Patches has to stay home.

Crossing Guard Gets New Ride

10 years ago Nathaniel Kendrick (Mr. Kent) retired  form the city of Dallas and became the local school crossing guard.  He is a favorite of the community. He is taking care of his ill wife and times are tough.  The families of the school love “Mr. Kent”.  They think the world of him.  Recently with all the bills adding up Mr. Kent had his car repossessed.  Some families from the school where he works found out about it and decided to do something.  Several Dads got together and bought him a new car.  They drove it up and parked it in the crosswalk knowing he would say something about the car being in the way.  He asked them to move the car and they told him that he could move it since it was his car.  He was quite overcome and couldn’t believe that they would do such a thing. There is true love between this man, the kids at the school and the families of the community.  What a great community to live in where you care so much for each other.  Thank you to Mr. Kent for being such a wonderful friend to the children he cares for and thank you to the community for showing him just how important he is.

Crossing Guard gets a new ride

Retired Marine Steps In To Help

School has started again in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.  Retired Marine Cpl Lewis Alston noticed that cars would not stop for the children close to Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary School.  He knew that something had to be done before something terrible happened.  So when school started this week, the retired Marine thought it would be helpful, and pretty cool for the kids, to put on his dress uniform and help the kids cross the busy street.  Other streets by the school have crossing guards but there just didn’t seem to be enough city funds for this street to also have a crossing guard.  So each weekday morning and afternoon, he downs his corporal’s dress blues and slips on his white gloves and hat.  The kids are just thrilled to have him there.  This video not only tells his story but also interviews him with a group of children.  What a humble man to give of his time this way.  I think it is also a great way to teach respect to the children who are honored to have him.  He says they love to ask questions about his service and especially like his medals.  We honor you, Cpl. Alston and not only thank you for your service then but now.  You are a hero to us.

Have a GREAT day…by making it a great day for someone else!!!
