WHAT'S YOUR 'ONLY IN PARK CITY' STORY?

Here is one we got from a volunteer:

A $100 bill fell out of my pants pocket at the grocery store, but I didn't notice until I got home. I figured it was gone forever. Even so, I called the store and asked if anyone had turned in any cash. Someone had, and when I went to pick it up, attached to the bill was the names and number of the 7-year-old girl who had found it and her mother. They wouldn't take any kind of cash reward - it was just 'the right thing to do'. - Jane
