A Neighbor in Need in the Hilltowns

Carleen Madigan and Cathy Stillerman of Cummington, MA:

Dear Friends,

We know that many of you have already received this information, but for those of you who haven’t, we wanted to share the sad news that our beloved West Cummington Congregational Church burned to the ground last Sunday, in a furnace-related fire.

Not only is the church (we say *is* because although the structure is gone, the congregation remains strong!) our neighbor on West Main Street, it is also *our* church. It’s an organization that supports the community in so many ways, and we’d like to help ensure that it continues.

After you donate to the Haitian relief effort, please also consider making a donation to the WCCC Rebuilding Fund at Florence Savings Bank (www.florencesavings.com).

And stay tuned for news of upcoming fundraising efforts for the church, here at the Remington Lodge.

Thank you so much!
