Mdm. Speaker, I rise today to recognize the generosity and Iowa nice spirit of a couple from my district.
Recently, Brent and Amy Brightman, the owners of Brent’s Firehouse Coffee in Camanche, presented the Camanche Police and Fire Departments with $2,000 each in what they hope to be the first of an annual donation to their city’s first responders.
When asked about the generosity of their donations, Brent, who has served as a volunteer firefighter in Camanche for over a decade, said that they started Brent’s Firehouse Coffee not only to support their community, but to support first responders.
Iowa has some of the best small businesses and first responders, and I am beyond proud to see our community come together to support one another.
Thank you, Brent, Amy, and the first responders of Camanche for your continued and unwavering service to our community.
Thank you, I yield back the balance of my time.
