Paper carrier delivery going above and beyond her duties

This letter is to let you know what an excellent paper carrier Rhonda Hammer is and to let you know how much we appreciate her.

This letter is to let you know what an excellent paper carrier Rhonda Hammer is and to let you know how much we appreciate her.

She delivers the Red Deer Advocate to our condominium building very early each morning and not only is she prompt, she is also observant and on three separate occasions has alerted us of issues she noted were unusual. Specifically, one morning she noticed water leaking from the boiler room and knocked on my door. A pipe in the boiler room had burst. We were able to take immediate steps to stop the water leak and mop up the floor preventing substantial damage to the building.

Another morning she noted the large garage door had been left open leaving the building in an unsecured manner. Again Rhonda alerted me so I could close the door and secure the building. Most recently Rhonda noted damage to the building caused by intruders who had broken into the building. We were able to take immediate steps to investigate the break-in and secure the building.

We are truly grateful for Rhonda going above and beyond her paper delivery duties and appreciate all she has done to help minimize damage to our building and to help keep our building secure. We truly appreciate her efforts.
