The Burzynskis are staying temporarily at the Frank R. Burzynski home north of Stanley, The Republican is told.


Fire Victims Need Help


Residents of this area have an opportunity this week to be real friends in need to the two families whose homes were burned last Friday.


Both the Stanley Burzynski and William Kroplein families lost nearly all of their belongings in the fires, and can use clothing and furniture to help them "get back on their feet" again.


Gifts for the Stanley Burzynski family may be left at the Frank R. Burzynski farm in Brownville.  Clothing is needed for the four children ages eight month, two, five, and six.  Mrs. Burzynski wears size 18 dresses, her husband size 38-40 clothing.  Furniture and bedding will also be welcome.


The Burzynskis managed to save only a couple of electrical appliances from their home. 


A benefit party is being planned for the Kroplein family at the Polly Tavern Thursday evening.  A pot luck lunch will be served and everyone is welcome.


The Kropleins are staying with the Lenarth Aaseths near Gilman until they are able to set up housekeeping again.
