In a time when it seems the world has been turned on its head, it is so good to hear of those who are doing good. Syracuse resident, Carol Flitton, is an advocate of reaching out and doing something for others. Plus, she leads by example. Carol is appreciative of the efforts that our first responders make every day and wanted to do something to recognize them. The sacrifices they make are often unknown to the general public, but they put themselves in harm’s way as part of their work. They protect our land and our properties, along with our personal safety. She also believes that the police officers have been given a great deal of criticism lately and not enough praise for those that perform their duties bravely and with honor.
When Carol was searching for a way she could personally say thank you to these valuable men and women, she turned to her personal talent as a professional artist. A few years back, she started to donate large works of art to various organizations as a personal thank you. Previously, she has donated paintings to the Huntsman Cancer Institute, the Layton Fire Department, Layton Police Department, and Weber State. This year, she has donated to Kaysville Fire Department, Syracuse Fire Department, Clinton Fire Department, and Farmington City Fire Department.
These are very special and personal ways for Carol to show her appreciation for hard work in some of the toughest jobs in our communities. Carol has devoted the last two years to creating and donating these beautiful paintings to say thank you to those in scrubs and uniforms. Thank you, Carol, for being a shining light in dark times.
Thank you to Barry Flitton for bragging to us about his wife and her awesome service. Surprise Carol!
