We wish to express our sincere appreciation to a few Winona individuals and businesses who came to our aid on the afternoon of Christmas Day. Our family, which includes three small children, was traveling from western Minnesota to Milwaukee when we hit a large piece of debris on the interstate and ended up with two flat tires and bent rims. We are very grateful to the couple who stopped to see if they could help, to Borkowski Towing, to Winona Leasing and Sales, and especially to State Patrol Trooper Heath Dienger, all of whose efforts got us safely off the side of the interstate and back on the road in a rental vehicle so we could make it to Milwaukee on Christmas. We were very impressed with the quick response, the efficiency, and especially the caring and helpful attitudes of those we met in Winona. Trooper Dienger, in particular, impressed us with his willingness to go the extra mile to help us out. In addition, we received friendly, quality service at Underdahl Toyota where our vehicle was repaired and ready for us on our return trip. A huge THANK YOU to all who helped us out after our unfortunate incident and helped make it a Merry Christmas after all!
