Restaurateur shows true generosity | Letter


I was recently reminded, through a stunning demonstration of generosity, how fortunate we are to be part of such a caring community.

Thursday afternoon I walked into Ciao in Coupeville. Owner Mark Laska was busy cranking out pizzas.

He shared that he had heard several helicopters and he just knew something was up at the hospital’s Emergency Department.

I was amazed to watch him box up several pizzas and run out the door to deliver them to hospital staff.

His words, “I know they are busy, and when things quiet down, these will be waiting for them.”

Thanks Mark. You are kind, you are generous and you are classic Coupeville.
