Tornado assistance appreciated

Thanks for the tornado assistance.

A sincere and heartfelt thanks to the Harrod and Lafayette Volunteer Fire/Rescue departments for their prompt assistance following our house being hit by a tornado on July 10.

You donít realize the value of these hometown heroes until you need them.

A special thanks to the Dray family who helped my wife and me maintain a level field for about two hours after we returned home to the situation.

ó Noretta and Bill Schantz, Harrod
