As someone that has been fortunate enough to live a 20 minute drive from Beauvoir and walk the grounds anytime I pleased, it is a sad sight. I think of the times that I have sat in one of the rockers on that porch and watched the water, walked the grounds, visited the cemetery, even got married at the Tomb of the Unknown Confederate Soldier in Oct. 2004, and to see it now, to see grown men cry at the sight of the house, walk around resisting the urge to start picking up debris because you could be accused of looting, see all the trees that were downed, it's like a member of the family is at death's door, the grounds have been cleaned up and fill dirt brought in, it is a slow moving process that we hope will gather momentum soon, thank you and God bless everyone that does what they can, even a dollar given is one more than what we had. All proceeds from gate receipts, raffles, and picnic basket auctions will go toward the rebuilding efforts.
