Maplelag Fire Update October 16th

Maplelag family together post fire with new baby Eira. October 14th, 2022.

As the first accumulating snowfall blanketed Maplelag today, we are reminded of the beautiful change of seasons and how fortunate we are to experience this. Nature has always been a huge inspiration for us as we navigate through decisions in life.

We have had a few days to reflect on the recent events and want to say how grateful we are for the overwhelming outpouring of support, acts of kindness and most importantly, the prayers. We have certainly felt God’s presence. Again, we are grateful no one was hurt. The time with family these past few days has strengthened what truly is most important to us.

We want to say a special thanks to the “MLK Six Swedes” group for setting up the Go Fund Me account. We are deeply touched by all the donations and words cannot express our appreciation. We have decided to use a portion of the funds, when the time comes, to disperse among our employees who have lost their jobs and part of their livelihoods. We will also use the funds to host a dinner for all of the firefighters and emergency personnel that assisted during the disaster.

As we move forward, our social accounts and website will have the most accurate information on the next course of action. Many of you have reached out asking what you can do. At this point we simply ask for continued prayers.

Thank you again for all the love, support, acts of kindness and the prayers. We love you all.
