Web Lead

Creston's Ross Millar was severely burned in an April 30 apartment fire.

A garage sale will be held June 12 and 13 (and possible June 14) at 2320 Birch St. to benefit the recovery fun for Ross Millar, who suffered severe burns in an April 30 apartment fire.

A hotdog and bake sale will be part of the event, and donations of cash or sale items are being requested. For more information about donating, contact Penny at 250-428-4948 in the evening.

On a GoFundMe.com page where over $4,700 has been raised for Millar’s recovery, a May 29 update, the most recent from the family, said, “Today, Ross went in for his third skin grafting surgery as it’s having trouble taking over his spine. He had a swallow test the other day that was good. He started to do physio this week beginning with sitting up. He is more aware now and understands where he is and what is going on.”
