Benefit for Galles Family

The Galles family lost their home to fire in February, and credit their lives to their dog Lily who woke them to the fire. The story was covered in the February issue of Villager Tower.

There is a benefit at West Union Church for the Galles family on May 21st from 3pm to 7pm. Spaghetti and Sloppy Jo’s will be served for $10/adult and $5/child. Additionally, there will be a silent auction and bake sale.
