Nice Guys Finish First
Jesse Norman has been a volunteer at The Beacon for the last two years. He is a modest man who works quietly in the background getting things done. Before he volunteered to fill the 7-9 p.m. time slot Thursdays and Fridays at The Beacon, Jesse began bringing support from the St. Vincent de Paul Society in Brighton, where he is the President.
What goes around, comes around. When Jesse turned 75 last week, he didn't mention it to anybody, but Cindy Huycke and her family took him by surprise. They wanted to make sure this significant birthday did not go unnoticed.
"He has really helped our family," Huycke told me some time ago. Last week she showed her appreciation for Jesse by surprising him with baked goods, gifts and artwork made by her sons.
