The Balaski family is thanking the Haliburton community for their support following the loss of their home to fire on June 8.
Val and Mike Balaski were home at the time of the fire and were able to get out of the house without injuries. However, they lost all of their possessions in the blaze.
Within hours the community had mobilized to provide supplies and money to the family.
In a message to the Echo, Val said “it would be important to let everyone who have supported us know just how full our hearts are with gratitude. Without their help, it would have been so much harder.”
She said there were so many people to name, she couldn’t make a full list, but that the kindness they experienced was incredible.
“From our hearts to their hearts, much love and appreciation. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
