Friends saved home from huge mess

Jack Smith spotted the high-creek water problem and went to work on it with his son Jack. Al Badgley and Scott Bradford both did loads of work. Jim Studley, Nishan Weerasinghe and Vince Hansen jumped in, too, and then Kris and Kevin Reeves. I’m sure there were others whom we may not be aware of. We are deeply touched and moved by our friends who saved us from a potentially awful situation. We did have some water damage, but thanks to good friends, we were saved a huge mess. Thanks to all of you and God bless you all. We love you and we love our special community of Haines.
