Shoemaker Country Flood Recovery
This photograph is from the second floor of Shoemaker Country during the Memorial Day weekend flooding.
We and those we partnered with have once again lost so much.
I want to thank those county officials who allowed me the time to retrieve the items that we need the begin rebuilding our business.
Pray for and continue to reach out and support Ellicott City.

It will still be a while before we can take occupancy. The drywall has to go up, electrical needs to be replaced and of course new front doors need to put in. Once that is done, we need time to take the empty shell and breathe life into it. We still do not know when we will be back in the shop, but we will be back.
Once again, thank you for reading, supporting and sharing.
While things are hopeful, the end is nowhere near in sight. The conditions are still terrible. I think the smell and the air quality are the worst thing you experience.
A friend of mine snapped a picture of Dad holding a small plate That said " When you are going through hell, keep going". This definitely captures the spirit of my father and his approach to this whole thing.
Thanks for reading, supporting and continuing to share,
