Hugs and Kind Words About NET From Wood River
Don't forget, it's hug-a-person-day," Donna Moyer says she heard one day on NET Radio, and she took it to heart. "I like to express my appreciation to those who do nice things for me," she explains.
"When a man opens a door, I look him straight in the eye and say, 'Thank you very much, you are a gentleman.' For a woman, I say, 'You have lovely manners.' People are surprised, but they like it," she explains.
Who doesn't want to feel appreciated and valued? It has been said that a hug or kind word is the best gift you can give. One size fits all, and no one ever minds if you return it.
An NET member and supporter for 23 years, Donna describes her appreciation for public radio.
"It is a station with a personality and one of our most valuable assets. I like to listen to the voices of the announcers. They sound really attuned to the issues. Their stories are broader and help to explain how the world ticks. I like to listen to both the content and the announcer's style," Donna says.
Born and raised in Grand Island, Donna has lived most of her life in Wood River. She was married to Charles "Chick" Moyer for 62 years before he died in 2014, and has four sons and one daughter.
Donna graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a degree in home economics. She worked at the Cornhusker Ordnance Plant near Grand Island before she and Chick bought the Bank of Wood River and insurance agency in 1952. The family-owned company, now the Heritage Group, Inc., has expanded over the years and operates in 13 Nebraska cities.
Now an avid gardener, Donna says she listens to NET Radio while she works, and continues to support and promote the station. "NET Radio expands my life in this world," she adds.
