On Tuesday Sept. 4, our home and property suffered extensive damage when a tornado struck the Alto area. ...
     The tree damage is not covered by insurance and we have been struggling to cut and remove trees and brush.  

     This past weekend, over 30 Ripon College students helped us by hauling brush, raking and stacking wood.  

     These young men and women worked very hard on both Saturday and Sunday persevering through the cold, damp weather.  

     They are even planning on coming again to help. ...

     While we do not live in Ripon, we have been impressed on numerous occasions by many in the Ripon community. ...
