People gathered at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Reynolds to support the Lacrosse family. There was food and live music.

John and Julie Lacrosse and their five children lost everything in that fire. They say they're overwhelmed by the response from the community, and grateful to have each other. They're going to start rebuilding their home Monday.

"It's an incredible feeling to have this sense of community and the number of people we're seeing out there has just been phenomenal.”

If you'd like to help, donations can be sent to Nancy Vodden at Burlington Northern Credit Union 3030 Demers Avenue, Grand Forks, 58201.
