McKeon-Dahl Family House Fire Fund

On Thursday afternoon October 23rd, 2014, the McKeon-Dahl family home was found to be engulfed in flames by son Joseph. Despite all his efforts and those of the firefighters and volunteers, the dwelling was completely consumed by this massive fire.  There were no physical injuries sustained due to the fire.

This tragedy, however, has left mother, Lori McKeon-Dahl, daughters Loren McKeon, 21, Kerry McKeon, 19 and son Joseph McKeon, 17, without a home.  The entire contents of their home, including their beloved pets, were lost due to fire, smoke, soot and water damage.  

With Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays around the corner and 3 children graduating this year from college, culinary school and high school respectively, "What is a Mother to do??"

Collectively, as a community, with the help of their family and friends, we can help Lori and her children begin to rebuild their lives.  The list of necessities is endless; clothes from head to toe (cold weather is fast approaching), entire contents of a kitchen, a dining room, a living room, 4 bedrooms and a bathroom (EVERYTHING)!!! 

If you would like to help with a monetary contribution, please support the McKeon-Dahl House Fire Fund.  A gift of any denomination is greatly appreciated and will be received with heartfelt thanks.

The family would like to thank all of the firefighters, EMS, police and volunteers for their countless hours of hard work, dedication and incredible efforts.  They would also like to thank community members, neighbors, friends and family for the overwhelming outpouring of support.

Please keep Lori and her children in your thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time.
