One reader asked me if there was a way he could help my neighbor whose house burned, and his family (four children). Please don't think I'm soliciting, because I know you all have needs near your own homes; but because it was requested, I'll post this one time.
There is a fund set up at the bank, and if you'd like to contribute, here's the address:
B & L Bank
205 South 13th Street
Lexington, Missouri 64067
Checks should be made out to the Hammond family Relief Fund.
