Jim and Jill McHaney’s home went up in flames on Father’s Day.  Thankfully they were able to get the grandkids out and their dog.  In addition, it did not touch the garage so none of their vehicles were damaged.  The insurance company says the house is toast and so they are looking for an apartment until the house can be rebuilt   As of two hours ago, Terry Nolan is OK.  Larry Mitchell will keep us updated or you can watch the news about the fire in Mayer (think I spelled that right).  Keep these people in your prayers and hope that the firemen can get the fire under control without too much more damage. 2)   This will be the last meeting to purchase a 2017 daytimers.
