Papa Joe's Fire Fund

My Dad, Joe Pemberton, otherwise known to most of us as Papa Joe, has given of himself to the local communities for 50+ years. Dad always taught us that things can be fixed and replaced, people cannot. It's time to give back. Dad's maintenance workshop at his farm was lost due to fire on Wednesday, 8/8 , in what appears to be a lightning strike. Being a retired veteran, living on a fixed income, and due to the policies for such a workshop being too high to afford, there was no insurance on the shop or its contents. It's a life's work of, just that, working for himself and others. Through his life drilling water wells and bulldozing in NW Ark and SW Mo; there are hundreds, if not thousands of people in the area who enjoy clear, clean water and beautiful views and functional pieces of land from his work. He's always been there to help his fellow man and give a smile and laugh. Let's see if we can give some back to him. Thank you in advance for your help. 32050480_1533938932760049_r.jpeg32050480_1533938946881732_r.jpeg32050480_1533938959750661_r.jpeg32050480_1533938969412066_r.jpeg32050480_1533938990673123_r.jpeg32050480_1533939003501652_r.jpeg32050480_1533939020217963_r.jpeg32050480_153393903383111_r.jpeg
