6-8-24 (Original Post) : Tupper Lake lost a piece of it's history last night. 36 Main St. tragically burned to the ground. First, a moment to thank all the volunteer and on staff firefighters, as well as local and state police.

36 Main St. has played an iconic role in this small town over the years...Yet, this building was so much more than that to a select few.

The King family called it home. A home, where Dan and Jen shared the spirit and love that it takes to build one, with anyone and everyone they knew.

It was the childhood home for Kelsey and Alamanda, as well as all their friends. For Dan, Jen, as well as their beloved pets, it was their current home and place of business. Memories, priceless mementos, as well as the lives of the precious animals, their cat Prints and rabbit Sr. Chester Bun-Buns, were all lost in the fire.

This is me, reaching out to all of you, that if you are able and willing to donate, it will help them rebuild; as we turn the page, and set our sights on what the next chapter holds.

6-9-24 : This morning I was able to meet with Dan and Jen.

First and foremost, please know, their level of gratitude for you all is immeasurable. There is such little room for sadness, when love and gratitude are what fill the room. So thank you everyone.

We also discussed what the future holds for them, 36 Main St., and this fundraiser. A couple things for now are certain: One, you all will be updated as the story continues on. Two, as a result of everyone's generosity and the momentum this fundraiser has, I made the decision to up our new goal to $50k.

These will be a reoccurring themes/statements as I continue to post;

Thank You All

Hammersong & Hammer-Strong, The Kings carry on.

6-12-24 : Join us THIS Friday, the 14th, at P-2’s Irish Pub in Downtown Tupper Lake!

There will be a benefit event for Jen and Dan, where everyone is welcome to come and share their Wheel Inn stories.

So please, come join us for a night of celebration, as we reminisce on some of Tupper Lake’s History.

6-15-24 : Heartwarming ♥️

While there was very little story telling last night…

although how many of us would be quick to jump on a and share our “we’ll only go out for one drink” stories?

The Junction Jam put on a great set and kept the energy going for the entire evening! Seeing everyone come out and show their support, well it continues to be something truly special to behold.

The results of the 50/50 match that very same vibe.

Spoiler Alert ‼️the winner bought a ticket and entered it with Jenn and Dan’s name on it so that way they would receive all the money ♥️

Tragedy strikes all our lives from time to time. But not often are we shown instances where entire communities come together in order to help one heal.

Tupper Lake is truly a special place & I am proud to be apart of this community. No place is perfect, but with love like this, regardless of everything, we truly have something special here in this small town ♥️

Thank you everyone!
