LIke many others in Taylorsville, homeowners in Early Wyne subdivision spent this past week struggling with the aftermath of Old Man Winter. Neither fallen trees, snow, ice, or the power outage could put a damper on their spirit. Neighbors took immediate action which started a chain reaction of giving. Many phone calls and visits were made to check on each other. One man carried his shovel around clearing sidewalk and driveways while other neighbors joined in. A few who had electric offered their homes and food. On the door of one home a sign read “Come in, help yourself to a hot shower and heat. Stay the night if you like.” Anne Villanova invited folks to her house to get warm, take showers and do their laundry. She said “I have to take good care of my neighbors.” Lisa and Dan Brown, a military family who moved to Taylorsville from New England could not believe the generosity and caring of their new neighborhood. Another family opened up their home to all, and prepared a pork roast dinner with all the trimmings for over twenty people. “Good ole comfort food was just what we needed.” said Kim Francysk, longtime resident of Early Wyne. Everyone was invited back for breakfast and a Super bowl supper. On Sunday evening when power was restored to the neighborhood, all agreed that they were blessed to live in this community.
