Letter: A champion, indeed

I always encourage my 6-year-old grandson to perform a good deed when the opportunity presents itself. Yesterday (Sunday) I was the recipient of such a good deed.

I inadvertently left my cell phone at Wendy’s on Innes Street. It was not until I got home that I realized my cell phone was missing. My pulse raced at all the possibilities. Of course, I called my number with no sound or response.

Shortly thereafter, a nice gentleman called me on my home phone. He advised he had found my cell phone on an empty table in Wendy’s. His name was Pete Bogle. He had picked it up hoping the owner would call. He and his family waited until I could make the 20-minute drive back into Salisbury. There he sat with his family awaiting my return. I was so thankful and relieved and offered to buy their lunch. They graciously refused and told me to pay it forward to someone else in need.

When I returned home feeling thankful and blessed, I decided to see if I could get any contact information for Pete Bogle to send him a note of thanks. The internet revealed that an article had appeared in the Salisbury Post the week before indicating Pete Bogle has been recocognized as Salisbury’s “Main Street Champion.” He certainly was my “main street champion” and we are fortunate to have him caring for the residents of Salisbury. It truly was a good deed that I will be sharing with my grandson. Thank you, Mr. Bogle.
