Jono and Cecile’s Sassafras paradise has burned to the ground. Because they’ll never ask for anything, we’re asking for them. 

Jono and Cecile, with help from friends, built this place themselves over many years. Many of us have been fortunate to spend time in Sassafras sharing food, stories, hard work, and laughter. Anything you could offer to help them find their feet again would be greatly appreciated.
