Let's Make A Porch Happen For Duane

As most of you know our friend Duane is battling a significant cancer battle.  It has been mentioned to me from a little birdie (Julia) that Duane has mentioned wanting to add a front porch onto their house.  What a perfect way for us to give back on his chemo days when he wants out for some fresh air.... with the help of Jake Estowoski (and others) who are willing to help build with no labor cost.... we just need to raise the funds for materials....  This is a surprise birthday gift for Duane (his birthday is in April) and more than likely will be done before his birthday as Jake is already lining up to get the permit to get rolling.... we just need to get the funds rolling in for the materials.  Any extra funds raised will be given to help with expenses to Duane and Julia.

I am working on getting two wooden andorandeck chairs and having them turned into U of M themed as he has mentioned liking to have a couple chairs if he was to ever get a front porch.  Again, Duane is a very humble man and would never expect or ask for this which just makes it that much better since so many of us are willing to help!

Please consider donating.... we also have a bank account set up at First Source on Ship St. in St. Joe but figured this would be an easy way to get money fast to help.  Thank you in advance.  WE GOT THIS!
