It was an urgent situation
An overnight fire took out three businesses, which is sort of a large percentage of overall businesses in this town.
You didn’t ask, but I am going to tell you anyway. The fact that yesterday’s post was a fire-damaged building and so is today’s is a complete coincidence. My workflow is not nearly organized enough to plan out something like that.
You didn’t ask about this either, but I want to say that the businesses that were destroyed – Klemke’s Sausage Haus, Klemke’s Antiques, and the Slaton Family Medical Center – were well-established local outfits, and all of them had been in business for around thirty years. Small-town Texas showed the good side of itself after this fire: there are two different GoFundMe campaigns to help the destroyed businesses. And the town is hosting a street dance and fireworks show on July 6, with proceeds to benefit the businesses. Way to go, Slaton!
