Raves for Wednesday, August 7, 2013

The Valdosta Daily Times

VALDOSTA — Editor’s Note: In 2013, Wednesdays will be  rave-only days. Thank you to our readers for your support.

As an employee of SGMC, I'm thankful to have a job and good benefits unlike those who worked for one of the many hospitals that were forced to close their doors in 2013. Just a few: Long Island College Hospital, Lakeside Memorial Hospital, Earl K. Long Medical Center, and closer to home Calhoun Memorial Hospital. I bet the employees of those facilities would gladly sacrifice some benefits to maintain employment.

I would like to rave about Steve at Zacadoo's on Inner Perimeter. He is always so nice and makes you feel like he really appreciates you coming by. This is why I am a regular! Great job, Steve, we appreciate you!

Just a quick thank you to all the volunteer firemen. Knowing that while you have families at home you still respond to even the most insignificant calls ensuring the safety of others. Because of what you do those of us in the county are safer.

Big RAVE to the people that work at Waffle House at 5 Points. My daughter and I stopped there the other night when we were in Valdosta after a long day of doctor appointments. The people  were so kind to us.

Thanks to the Valdosta Fire Department for coming out to my home and installing three smoke detectors and taking the time to talk to us about them. My family really appreciates it.

I would like to thank Lorrie at Valdosta Medical Clinic for helping me with my account. She was very kind, understanding and professional.

I'm with you on the Animal Shelter. Just got the most precious little rat terrier and all it cost was $105. Saved her life and she brought joy to ours! You'll never meet nicer people than the ones that volunteer their time to the shelter. Please support the shelter!

Thanks to the Student Affairs Office at VSU for helping me and my family during a difficult time. Nice to know there are still some caring people out there.

I would like to thank the wonderful people at Pearlman Cancer Center. Dr. Devine, Dr. Dallas, nurses and radiation technicians for their wonderful treatment of me the last seven weeks.

Thanks to Travis at Auto Zone on Bemiss Road for the excellent care I received. He was very knowledgeable and went out of his way to take care of me. I will definitely be a future patron of Auto Zone.
