In Praise Of Good Works

Dear Editor:

The only reason to bring “good work” to a halt would be the non-compliance of the rules and regulations that may be set forth in the place where the work is to be demonstrated and carried out. A “good work” as well as the promoter of it should show a consideration of all the rules and regulations which may be involved and exhibit kindness and a sense of virtuousness.

Immediately following Super Storm Sandy we had many “good works” being performed in our home of Dayton Towers Corp. which, management allowed and knew of giving the OK to.

I would like to give special thanks to management for the wonderful programs of relief that were instituted here, especially to Mr. Richard Nardo and Mr. Jonathon Klein for their untiring efforts. One good work which came about recently was the distribution of free produce on our property to the shareholders by the “Culinary Kids Day Camp” which was promoted by a shareholder with the best of intentions. The problem arose that the free produce was being distributed without the knowledge of management. This was not the error of the organization itself but the shareholder who had promoted it. Proper protocol was not followed therefore this good work had to come to an abrupt halt until it could be examined by management in the light of the rules and regulations pertaining to the protection of our home.

I would like to address two additional points from the said letter to which I am referring. First off I would like to request that the author would kindly forward to management a list of the “free services” that passed us by because of the hassles that they would encountered as well as what dates they wanted to distribute and carry out these services.

Secondly, exactly how and in what manner has Dayton Towers shut out the rest of the community in a way that is described as exclusionary and offensive according to the author of said letter? As I see it, if this was the case, why were those from the surrounding community allowed to come on to Dayton Towers property to receive the free relief that was being distributed here (in particular buildings 7600 and 7400). I have been a firsthand witness to this. Was this an attempt to exclude the rest of the community in time of need? I think not, it was quite the contrary. It was inclusionary.

So in closing I would like to thank all of the relief organizations who have and are still distributing relief to those in the New York, and New Jersey areas. Also thanking all the shareholders and some of the children, supers, handymen, maintenance, and some of the Board of Directors who took part in the unloading, organizing and distribution of the relief aid to our home of Dayton Towers and to those who came from the community who were in need. Let’s continue in this spirit of unity here in Dayton Towers Corp., without the bashing or degrading of the character of those in management or the Board of Directors or each other but, being considerate, and show kindness and exhibit the characteristics of being virtuous in what we say and do. Having a desire to continue to do and allow good works here that follow proper protocol of rules and regulations set forth by management and the corporation, again for our protection.
