To the Editor:

We would like to express our deepest appreciation to Judge Myers and Commissioners Britton and Labhart, and to the entire courthouse staff for providing office space to the local outreach center after the ESD fire.

Because of the gracious invitation and quick action of the Court and the ESD staff, we were able to regroup and carry on services to local college students in just a few short days, in time for the beginning of fall term.

We owe special thanks to Hilary McNary and Shannon Springer in the Planning Department for being so welcoming and inviting to BMCC and EOU students and staff.

It was a great location for us and for our local students, and we enjoyed our stay. We will especially miss the fantastic Christmas potluck!

A difficult experience was made much better by the kindness and generous support of all of the courthouse and ESD staff.

Grant County is a wonderful place to live and work – and to get a college degree! Please come visit us in our beautiful new location in the rebuilt ESD, 835 South Canyon Blvd., John Day.
