Cause of Elyria church fire not yet determined

The church where the Lorain County Post-Polio Support Group met for so many years had a horrible fire. We are taking up a collection for them to thank them for being so good to us over the years...never charged us a cent and let us have a key. They are a wonderful group of people.  Jo Sage
