FITZ ON MAIN, 109 N MAIN ST., K'VILLE
TEMPORARILY CLOSED AS OF 5/30/2024 DUE TO A FIRE

📷May 30, 2024 FIRE @ Fitz on Main
A tragedy unfolded in the early morning hours of May 30. Right around midnight, someone noticed heavy smoking pouring out the front door of Fitz (109 N Main Street, K'ville) Fire trucks arrived within moments of the call. The news is devastating--------------the damage is quite extensive. It's the initial belief of the firemen that the fire started in the mens bathroom and is related to the wiring of the fan.

It's unknown when Fitz will be reopened.


While it's been less than 24 hours since the fire, David Fitzpatrick is overwhelmed by the support from his friends and the Kernersville community due this great sense of loss.

 

"He heals the brokenhearted, and binds up their wounds"  Psalms 147:3

June 1: Saddened by the May 30th death of retiree  Dottie Bodenhamer, and the June 1st death of retiree Jeff Weavil.  See the In Memory link. 

 

Prayer request: 

June 2:  John Parham is in need of our prayers
as he manages another round of cancer. He has been diagnosed with Stage 3 colon cancer. A large sized tumor was removed in March.   During that time he had covid and a staff infection which led to being in the hospital, followed by rehab.  He expects to start chemo soon 

 

May 2, 2024:  Thanks to Sam Moss for sharing news involving a memorial for Walt Leonard (Walt died in 2019) 
 A cabin at a Boy Scout camp in Georgia has just been built and dedicated to Walt.  Mike Morgan has a thoughtful reflection of Walt's impact that is included in a brochure about the cabin.

 April, 2024:  Congratulations to Diane Bacon on her Feb. 6, 2024 retirement.  She started with the bank in June 1980.  44 years of loyal service is quite an achievement!
