On Saturday June 16th, 2012 Keith and Pam Hinshaw of Payson, Illinois lost almost everything they owned when their mobile home burned to the ground. They also lost their best companions in their three puppies. Due to the age of their home it was deemed uninsurable so they have no monetary relief coming from insurance.
Keith and Pam are currently homeless and are being temporarily housed in a motel thanks to the American Red Cross. They have also set up a fire relief fund for them with the State Street Bank of Quincy, Ill. And I have added a Pay Pal Donate button for donations to be made by credit card to this fund.
To donate to their relief fund please make checks payable to either Keith or Pam Hinshaw or to the "Hinshaw Fire Benefit Account" and mail to:
Hinshaw Fire Benefit Account
c/o State Steet Bank
Quincy, IL 62305
Or donate by credit card through PayPal
Payson is just outside of Quincy, IL. and many people in the Tri-State area know Keith from seeing him perform in bands over the years as a lead guitarist and vocalist. Many of us in the St. Louis, MO. area have had the pleasure of performing with him also. I personally have known Keith since we first played music together in 1979 at the old "Rainbow Lounge" which was the stomping grounds of Chuck Berry and Billy Peek. So I'm asking all musicians who know Keith to please donate any amount you can to help him and Pam overcome this nightmare that they are in right now.
