A Fairdale woman's last wish is to be back in her home; reconstruction of that house is about to begin, and a pair of fundraisers will be held in Kirkland on September 26th to help in the effort.
86-year-old Irene Clay survived the April tornado, but her home was heavily damaged; she has lung cancer, and is hoping to go back to her finished home while there's still time.
Fundraisers for the rebuilding effort will be held in two locations on September 26th; one will be a pork chop and pasta supper, with a silent auction, at Kirkland Methodist Church at 300 South Street, from 4 to 7 p.m.
At the same time, a pork chop sandwich dinner will be offered at Farmers Inn, located at 521 West. Main in Kirkland, from 4 to 7 p.m. That will be followed with music by the duo Destination Unknown, from 7 to 10 p.m.
Free will donations will be accepted at both sites.
