Guest workers from several countries graced us this summer on temporary visas.
A simple exchange between Cherry Republic’s Bob Sutherland and Ruby from the Dominican Republic, working at Anderson’s IGA. Bob had an item at checkout that totally confused Ruby. He whispered “Asparagus.” Nothing. He quietly spelled it out and together they found it on the touch screen. A gesture of understanding repeated many times as the season progressed. Grateful for our differences.
