Rodney and Jean Cox, owners and operators of the Four Seasons Motel wish to express their sincere appreciation and gratitude to the community regarding the incident at the motel in the early morning hours of Monday, January 21.
Without the immediate and combined assistance of the following community members, neighbors, friends, family and even guests at the motel, the accident scene could have been much worse.
Thanks to the prompt response of the “First Responders” Alan Middleton of the Mount Vernon Police Department, Dan Montgomery, the Posey County Sheriff’s Department, and the Black Township Fire Department, the Posey County Ambulance, who no doubt saved the drivers life. Their quick action removed the threat of fire that could have developed into a life threatening event.
Thanks to, Sam Banks and Dan Banks who brought their tractor with the front loader to help remove debris and glass from the accident site.
Thanks to Ries Farms and their employees, Jeremy Bolt, Troy Dekemper, Ray Neth, Roy “Tiny” Stiltner, Greg Oeth, WSI and all the folks who showed up with brooms and shovels to remove bricks and glass and who used their hammers and nails to prop up the front business foyer.
Thanks to Schultheis Insurance and who was on the spot to held and guest Frank Brandon who made hot soup to help feed everyone who was working on the accident site.
We know not all the names are listed, but we want everyone involved to know we recognize and appreciate your tremendous effort at helping us open for business as usual and uniting under duress as good neighbors and members of our valued community. We are deeply grateful.
Rodney and Jean Cox
