An early morning fire on Wednesday destroyed the apartment home of Brian and Brenda Williamson. These individuals have been longtime contractors here on Dewees Island and have worked tirelessly to help us in a variety of ways. Brenda is in charge of housekeeping for all of our POA buildings, Brian assists us with miscellaneous maintenance tasks from time to time, and both of them have worked for many of island owners as well.
Fortunately, no one was seriously injured in the blaze, but like all the other residents of the building, Brian and Brenda have now lost their home and everything they owned in the fire.
Our summer hospitality interns are collecting canned foods and nonperishables for the family. These food items may be dropped off at the marina near the ferry office. Also, a donation page has been established on Facebook by their daughter. If you would like to make a personal donation to the Williamsons, you may do so by following this link: https://www.facebook.com/donate/362774714349940/
