To Whom It May Concern.

Mr John Bell was one of the first neighbors I met in Cotter after moving here a year ago.
He immediately offered his assistance in helping me move in and get situated.
Due to physical limitations, I am unable to lift heavy loads, etc., and John has been a God send to me.
He has continously helped me throughout the year in many ways.

Not only has he helped me, he is a very civic minded person and goes out of his way to help anyone in need.
As an example, John is Assistant Fire Chief of the Cotter Volunteer Fire Department. He is dedicated in making Cotter a nicer place to live.

We have become close friends which I consider an honor.
He is very practical minded honest man who is well known for his ability to "fix anything that needs fixing".

John loves the outdoors and is continously seeking ways to improve the environment.

I highly recommend John for any position that requires dedication and a desire to do a job well done.
I truly believe he will be a positive assett to your organization.
