Grant family raises money for tornado victims PDF Print E-mail


With lemonade offered for a free will donation, Myles Bishop (left) and sister Lauren raised funds for a family affected by the Pilger tornado June 14. The Bishop kids, helped by mom Deanne, set up the lemonade stand for several hours last Thursday next to the post office in downtown Grant and raised $376.06. The proceeds are going to the Jensen family, which has ties to Grant through former resident Sara Wilson. Wilson is getting married July 5 to Kyle Jensen whose family home was demolished in the tornado. Donations can still be made through July 4 at Heritage Insurance in Grant (227 Central Ave). Pat and Patti Vlasin at Heritage Insurance are one of the host couples at the wedding and will give the funds to Kyle’s family during the wedding weekend. Not pictured: Megan Bishop.
