Last evening a devastating tornado struck in Ozark just south of Springfield and completely destroyed the home of District Governor Susan Haralson and her husband Shannon. Fortunately they were able to make it to a shelter area of their home and were spared any physical injury.

I attended the meeting this morning of Susan’s Springfield Sunrise Rotary Club and witnessed the incredible love and support flowing from this great group of Rotarians to support the Haralsons in every way. After hearing of the tragedy, President G.R. Stovall and President-Elect Anthony Roberts immediately went to the site around 10pm last night to offer their support and provide an assessment of the damage. They report that while the emotional trauma of their loss is deep, the Haralson’s are grateful that they were not injured and thankful that the losses that they suffered can be replaced through time and with love and support from their many friends.

G.R. and Anthony suggest that the best suggestion to those wanting to help at this time is to send out your support, thoughts and prayers.
