New home for Harlie and family!

At approximately 9 a.m. on Friday, March 13th, Renee' Pate Gore, Rick Lafreniere and their 6yr old daughter Harlie lost their home and all of their belongings to a horrible fire.  The fire consumed 50% of the house before firemen arrived, and a total of 10% of the framing remained once the fire was extinguished.  To worsen matters, they lost 2 cats, baby chicks and 4 baby ducks.  Renee' has been a life time resident and friend of the Holly Ridge/Hampstead area, and Rick moved here 20+yrs ago, when he became a stable employee at many of the bars located on the island.  This family has suffered such an unbelievable loss, and would be forever grateful to any help that can be offered.
