Pay It Forward: Rusted Old Car


By:  Leah Jacobs, Onalaska Offfice

I was in Galesville on the square this last weekend with my husband Mark eating breakfast, after waking up early to do chores. Looking out the window as we were eating, we saw an older man in overalls get out of a very run down, rusted out car. That was my inspiration. I grabbed a restaurant napkin and wrote Merry Christmas on it. After we were done eating and walking in square, I located the gentleman's old beat down car and decided--yes-- that he could use some gas money. I pressed open the gas door--it popped open-- and I put the money in there with a napkin from restaurant that said "Merry Christmas".

I hope this offers a surprise then next time this gentleman goes to fill up his gas tank!
