The Huntoon Hill Grange Hall in Wiscasset will be the host for a benefit bingo on Sunday, Sept. 22 at 1:30 p.m. The bingo will benefit the Smerdon family from Bristol that lost their home due to a fire the early morning of July 5.
A fire that started in a storage shed quickly spread to two vehicles and a house. The shed burned down and the two vehicles, a Chrysler minivan and a Ford truck, were burned out. The house also has extensive smoke and fire damage. An approximately 20-foot hole was burned in the roof after the fire spread into the attic.
Local area friends and merchants are donating merchandise for this benefit. Supporters are hoping they can help the Smerdon family start to rebuild their lives after this tragic event.
To donate, please contact George Sawyer at 677-2249. Come one, come all and help out this great cause!
