Our Dive Buddy Needs Our Help

Our friend and dive buddy, Steve Burton, along with his wife Corrine have lost all their possessions and their home to the flood waters of Hurricane Florence.

Many of us remember Steve as the past president of our local Long Island diving group, The Dive Club.

Steve retired last year and moved to New Bern, North Carolina, where he and Corrine settled into a new home. Everyone who knows the Burton's where invited to visit and several of Steve's dive buddies did just that, this past summer.

With the flood waters that hit New Bern this September, Steve and Corrine's home was completely flooded. They have lost all their possessions. The house itself has to be evaluated for structural integrity. The entire house may have to be torn down. 

Steve and Corrine now have to rebuild their lives, starting with  very few possessions remaining.  They would appreciate any donation you are able to give.  Some items are irreplaceable but we can help Steve and Corrine purchase things to begin anew.

Let's help Steve rebuild so we can visit him again and enjoy the company of our dive buddy.
