Benefit for Winn Fire Victims 

A family of 8 from Winn left homeless by fire, is seeing just how generous their community can be.Richard and Megan Plaisted, and their six children, lost their home on Military Road last week.Megan is expecting to deliver another child in november.The Plaisteds lost nearly everything they own.The fire was sparked by chicken left frying in the kitchen when Megan left the house to chase a loose horse. The community has generously replaced many of those items lost.The family is currently living on the campus of Lee Academy while they look for a permanent home.Collection baskets are out at the Winn General Store and Raymonds Gas Station and Diner.Anyone wishing to make a donation can do so through the Plaisted Family Fire Fund at Machias Savings Bank, 29 Main Street, Lincoln 04457.
