Buckeye Lake Eagles Ladies Auxiliary President Gayle Thomas (back to the camera) hugs Margaret Morgan after the Ladies Auxiliary presented Tom and Margaret Morgan with a generous check to help defray some of their expenses after the Sept. 16 tornado destroyed their home outside of Somerset. The Morgans are members of the Buckeye Lake Eagles. Margaret is a past president of the Ladies Auxiliary. Tom, who is now retired, worked for years as a mechanic at the Buckeye Lake Truck Stop. Both were in their home when the tornado’s 75 mph winds torn it apart. Neither of them were injured. Their family Bible which had previously survived a fire was not damaged. The Ladies Auxiliary makes multiple charitable donations throughout the year. Their motto is “People helping people.” Beacon photo by Charles Prince.
