Support groups for single parents would be an awesome idea and is badly needed. Not sure but maybe even one of the churches offer that. Check at St. Marys. If not, they might be interested in starting one. Single parents need all the support they can get. It's a tough job and many do it so well!!
thank you that is some helpful information greatly appreciated.

Hospice workers. Gosh what amazing people they are! And nurses who go the extra mile to make a scared patient feel better or to just offer some comfort. Home health aides that enable elderly people to remain in their own homes longer. These are all people who live in our community and deserve to be noticed!

You are so welcome! And don't give up on the job hunt. Someone will recognize a person who wants to work and snatch you up!:-)

I'll keep the names to myself. It's safe and saves them from the bashing.

Someone should initiate a Habitat For Humanity organization for Ti and surrounding towns.

Thank you Amazed, I have been a watcher of this forum for a while now and am so glad that a positive thread has been started and so far so good. I have been a lifetime resident of the Champlain Valley and know that the positives far outnumber the negatives which is what makes our area so great, but it is not often portrayed here on Topix. Don't get me wrong, I love the gossip and seeing how the other half lives as much as the next person, but there are amazing people here as well, how about the volunteers that give their time to protect us daily, our firefighters, they have been bashed on here, but when you need them, they come no matter what has been written, and I for one appreciate every hour of training and service that they have completed on their own time and how they are trained to protect my safety and yours. Thanks to all of them.

I agree that would be so helpful then the people who needed a home could even help build there own home then they would be proud and have a sense of worth.

So I hear alot about Ti Topix and of course I have to check it out!! Wow you all seem to know alot about other peoples business! That is scary...So basicly all I have to do is ask for a hair dresser, a contractor, if you know someone and I am going to hear all the worst about everyone!!I am not perfect but I hope I never make it on topix! I would hate to hear what you all might have me doing, saying, being! Just thought i would put this out there and get some other views on this. Cant wait to see what you all have to say.
Ti topix certainly has a reputation and unfortunately it reflects the nature of the people in this town. Go search on any other topix forum for towns in NY, VT etc.. and you will NOT see the amount of garbage, gossip that people post on this site. This has to be the most gossipy town that I have ever witnessed in my entire life. Thank God I am not a "Ti local". I would be embarrassed to say that to ANYONE and I feel sorry for those that do.

We are trying to change that by pointing out the positive and good people of our community. And there are many!! I think it's just more "Fun" for some deranged reason to focus on the gossip instead of trying to say something useful, pleasant or constructive. But that is changing. All of the post on this topic have reflected that I think. I hope it continues because it has been a pleasure to read.

I am not certain but it would be a wonderful plus and much needed service to our area. It certainly bears looking into and I will be checking it out as soon as I possibly can. I also want to take a moment and acknowledge a lady I know that takes an hour of her very busy day to walk a dog for an elderly lady who really has no one but her little critter friend. Not mentioning any names but hopefully she will read this and be aware that she is appreciated. Also to the nice people who visit shut ins and just sit and chat and make then feel cared about. Any other nominees??

How about all of the Moms, Dads, and Grandparents that take the time to provide family support for their children and grand-children.

I also want to nominate the secret santa at Christmas. Several years back I lost my dear spouse just before the holidays. To say the least I was not in a festive mood. One day a vehicle and some people showed up with bags of gifts and even a gift card so I could pay some bills that had fallen behind. I begged for their names, but they refused. The smile on their face said it was the only thank you they needed. Talk about wonderful community neighbors. I felt blessed! Every year now my family passes on the same gift. It's an honor.

Not always proud of some of my neighbors viewpoints, but very proud of the majority who do so much good for no credit and little recognition.
