Rebuild after fire - Jan and Bob

In mid February 2018, Jan and Bob Francis, owners of the Chester House Inn in Chester Vermont lost the large majority of their personal belongings when there was a chimney fire at the inn.  The heaviest damage was in their residence.  They are wearing borrowed clothing, really have lost so much.  As I can only imagine, this has been devastating for them, though they are super thankful that they and their pets and the actual inn are ok.  This effort is to help them raise money to help them get back on track.  So much is needed.
