One thing is for sure about the Lansingburgh community. Whenever someone is in need of help, people just seem to come together to help them out. There's a couple of fundraisers planned next weekend, for two long time residents of the 'Burgh, to do just that.
On Thursday, May 30th, there is a Lasagna Dinner planned for Mike Harrison. Mike suffered two brain aneurysms on April 11th, and then endured more than 9 hours of surgery to save his life. Needless to say, Mike isn't doing to well right now. Having worked with Mike on several projects over the years, I can tell you he's alway's willing to help out with any project that benefits the 'Burgh. His medical bills are going to be astronomical, so a few of his friends have stepped up to ease the burden. Here's the info you'll need to help Mike.
