A tip of the hat to Tryonites

To the Editor:

As we come to the close of another year in Tryon, I find much cause in our community to reflect on what the English poet William Wordsworth calls that best portion of a good mans life, his little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and love.

Life in the civic arena is sometimes a challenge, especially when one wears many hats in a small community confronted with change. However, I do find among our citizens in this small parcel of paradise an extraordinary generosity of spirit and an endearing giving of self.

To the unnamed individuals and organizations whose actions demonstrate these kindnesses in ways both private and public and by means both simple and profound, I/we thank you. Your numerous magnanimous gestures make our community better, and your examples inspire others to the same.

Thank you.
