In October, a fire destroyed a home on Pansy Court, leaving residents Bruce and Eileen Krai with literally the shirts on their backs.
No one was injured but the Krais lost all of their belongings, Ted Zabohonski told Patch at the time. Zabohonski is a friend and neighbor to the Krais. He created a help fund for the family following the fire.
Bruce and Eileen Krai wrote to Patch this week to express their gratitude for the support from the community following the fire. Here is the letter:
Dear Neighbors and Concerned Citizens,
We thank you all for your thoughts, prayers and monetary gifts during our devastating fire loss of our home October 11, 2012 at 5 Pansy Court.
We especially thank Ted Zabahonski and Margaret Chleboski of Newtown Grant, Fawn Hollow who set up and collected monies to be held in the Newtown Fire Victim Fund in the First National Bank of Newtown. We also thank Kara Seymour, of the Newtown Patch, who was instrumental in publishing the notice of the fire on Newtown Patch.
With much humility and sincerity we thank you,
Bruce and Eileen Krai
