After we sent a note and a check we heard back from Gillian. All or her critters survived. She mentioned that she is replacing the trees that burned. I do not know where she stands as far as insurance coverage for the loss of her home and all of it's contents, but I am sure she could use a bit of help.
I am posting this in the hope that some of you will write her and maybe help out financially, especially those who have stayed with her in the past.
The community of Ordway has established a fund to assist everyone who suffered losses in the fire. Checks (tax deductible) can be made to the Crowley County Community Foundation, c/o First National Bank of Ordway, PO Box 278, Ordway, CO, 8103.
If you want to send her a note or a check directly.... Her address can be found at:
She is a very kind and generous lady who has put up hundreds of TransAmerica cyclists in her home in recent years. I think that we were numbers 79, 80, and 81 for the year in 2007 alone just to give you an idea how many riders she has helped out.
