Lately I have been all about stories of people doing good things. I think we as a society are deluged by negative stories and I would love to turn the tide if even just a little. In the midst of the tragedies and crime that I realize have to be reported on , I think it's important that we remind ourselves that there are good people in this world and not everyone is bitter, angry and cynical.

I saw this post on out WGNA Facebook page and knew that not too many people would see it, so I wanted to share it in a blog.

I'm sure we have all dealt with over zealous security guards or staff at concert venues who at best don't seem to even want to be there let alone help. It really can ruin what would otherwise be a well deserved and needed night out for a couple or family In this case the story of the staff at Proctors Theater in Schenectady actually went above and beyond to make someone's night easier and their experience a positive one.

On the post to our Facebook page a listener wrote: "I would like to give a GREAT BIG SHOUT OUT to the staff at Proctors. My friend has trouble walking because of fibromyalgia. As we were leaving (from nearly front row seats) the staff noticed that she was having a difficult time walking up to the main hall. Two staff members stopped us, one got a chair the other went to retrieve a wheelchair. They wheeled her the the State Street entrance and waited with her until I was able to fight the traffic and arrive, then helped her to and into the car. So a great show followed by great service."

To be honest I too have always had great experiences with the staff at Proctors and am so glad we have such a great relationship with them. I love the Secret Star Jams we have there and look forward to many other great nights in that historic venue.
