Community stepped in to help after fire

 


We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to the Haines Volunteer Fire Department, Steve Barry, Kim Stinson, Derek Poinsette, the folks at Alaska Power & Telephone, Chilkat Valley News, Chuck Mitman, the Uglys, our kind neighbors, and wider community for your time, effort, and the many forms of support surrounding the fire that burned down our cabin on Feb. 16. We are so grateful for the way our community has stepped in and made sure Lawrence Strawbridge, Sylvia Heinz, and her friends KT Miller and Elly Rosing are cared for. The kindness and support shown for our loss, gladly only a material one, has reminded us (yet again) of the huge hearts that make up our dear community!
