Raising the Barn
by, 10th November 2009 at 10:01 PM (156 Views)
I reported a while ago about the barn burning down on the family farm. I also posted on the efforts to raise money to help my uncle, John Helmstetter. It was originally stated that the money raised would not go to rebuilding the barn.
However, the response was so large that they are going to rebuild it. Already, local farmers and members of the Amish community are working on building the walls. Starting this Thursday, the rest of the barn will be raised.
Unfortunately, I will not be able to go up there, as not only do I have school, but it is also opening night of the play I'm in. My dad may go up there if he gets the chance. Still, this is excellent news. I'll be sure to post pictures once I get them.
For now, here's a link to a little blurb in the Cumberland Times-News, which includes a photo.
