Luskville — Tragedy struck last weekend when a home, located on the grounds of Venturing Hill Farm in the Luskville sector of the Municipality of Pontiac, was gutted by fire, taking with it every precious possession belonging to the home’s owner, Lorraine Laframboise. 

More hurtful, Lorraine’s two cherished rescued dogs were also victims, inflicting a deeper wound.

Members of our community have already begun rallying to come to Mme. Laframboise’s aid.  Jean Standbridge has launched an awareness campaign and Julie Murphy is heading a fundraising initiative to solicit help for Lorraine.
