Early in the morning of March 11, a fire started and devastated John Marro's lower barn. John runs a small dairy farm on the East Road in Tinmouth, called the JohnDee Farm. Unfortunately the fire consumed the barn, hundreds of bales of hay, his tractor, equipment and most of his sows, piglets and heifers. He was able to rescue six piglets and one heifer before the barn collapsed. By daylight local farmers were already there to help. Hay and shelters for the pigs arrived!
Dinner will include shepard's pie, lasagna, baked ziti, chicken pie, goulash, baked beans, salads and pies. There will also be a silent auction and 50/50 raffle. All proceeds will go to the Marro family and dinner is by donation.
For information about the supper contact Gail Fallar at email@example.com or call 446-2870. Those interested may also call Sherri Ruane for the silent auction at firstname.lastname@example.org or 446-3105.
To make a donation to the rebuilding, send a check made out to John Marro to: Cathy Reynolds 143 Channel Road, Tinmouth, VT 05773.
