It takes a village

The African proverb, “it takes a village,” was very evident on the weekend of July 23 at Oneida Acres in Williston during a fundraiser for our son, Stephen. The call Fran Henning put forth, to help a neighbor, was answered loud and clear as hundreds of people showed up at our neighborhood yard sale. We would like to thank Fran for coming up with the idea and the Williston Observer for their wonderful cover story (“Oneida Acres hosting garage sale to benefit accident victim,” July 21, 2011).

Also, a heartfelt thanks goes to all who donated and/or participated in the event. It was an overwhelming success.
