Funds after fire

Dinner proceeds to help in rebuilding of home



Cost for the dinner is $15 per person for advance tickets and $20 per person at the door. Tickets are available at the Jefferson and Geneva locations of H&R Block.

Vicky Kidd said her house was insured, but only for the mortgage, and didn’t cover the replacement of the house or any belongings.

“When we say we lost everything, I mean we lost everything,” she said. “The insurance adjuster came out and said that there was not an inch of the house that wasn’t touched by fire.”

There is a catch in Vicky’s voice when she remembers her destroyed wedding photos, her family heirlooms and other irreplaceable treasures.

“Of course there are things that we just can’t replace,” she said. “But we believe that God got us out of that place alive. There was no smoke because it was all in the walls. The fire was literally in the rafters. We are just grateful to be alive because it really is amazing that we got out in time.”
