Bailes' Fire Recovery Fund

On Wednesday, March 21, 2018, Ronald and Betty Bailes lost their home and their belongings to a devastating house fire.  Luckily, they were unharmed but the property is deemed a total loss as is most of their personal possessions.  Thankfully, we were able to salvage some items (e.g. photo albums) but as you can see from the photos most items were destroyed.   Mr. and Mrs. Bailes, better known as "Pop and Maw" have been married for 59 years and in this home for the past 28 years.  The loss of items include handcrafted furniture and throws/blankets that were passed down through the generations.  

Please help us get them back on their feet!  We know money doesn't replace some items but rebuilding will be an uphill battle and any support would be helpful.
