This week’s Pandemic Heroes nomination comes from chef Ryan Crawford, who wanted to celebrate the staff at Penner Building Centre in Virgil.
He said through the pandemic, the staff have adapted and gone out of their way to help fill orders for residents.
“I want to nominate Penner’s because they’re awesome,” Crawford said, specifically mentioning managers John and Judy.
“I have Judy’s cellphone. I text her, ‘Hey, I need this.’ And she’s like ‘Got it’ and gets it, and then it’s getting late in the day, she’ll come and drop it off for me.”
He said a simple good deed deserves to be recognized during the pandemic.
He also commends the staff, who, like many, got “ripped on” by some customers when the pandemic restrictions began.
“I just want to say these two people are like keeping it going. They help everybody out, they’re the friendliest people,” Crawford said.
