Letter to the Editor: Thanks to 2014 Tax Aide volunteers


Dear Editor:

The doors have closed on 2014 free Tax Aide Assistance this year at the Edmonds Library. I want to take a few minutes to thank the incredible volunteers who made this free service to our community a reality. From the beginning of February through April 15 these trained, kind, caring volunteers put together a program to prepare tax returns for four hours a day, three days a week. Their work includes scheduling, listening, giving advice, filling out tax returns, filing returns online, and bringing relief to so many people who need help with their tax returns. It is all done 100% free of charge, no strings attached. And why do they do this? Because these people want to make a difference in our community. Volunteer Coordinator Extraordinaire Jim Wassall quietly added many, many more hours of service to make certain it all happens seamlessly.

Our volunteers are absolutely the best! Thanks to them all: Phil Dicrescentis, Johnny Fresco, Richard Glazier, Ernie Johnson, Diane Katt, Sylvia Kealy, Ken Magill, Sharon Merrell, Bob Mooney, Jean Quan, Karen Van De Grift, Jean Yee, and, of course, Jim Wassall. They are amazing and deserve a loud and long round of applause for their service to the Edmonds community at the Edmonds Library.
