Account for fire victims set up
An account has been set up at the Wells Fargo Bank for the Goracke family, which recently lost its home and belongings in a fire.
The Gorackes have been active in the community, donating countless hours to youth programs, especially wrestling and football. Interested community members can make a donation at any Wells Fargo Branch to the Goracke fire fund account.
