Sarah Thompson, her four children and her mom had just discovered Hopkins County and made their home on Highway 19 North in the Old Tarrant Community when a house fire ravaged everything they owned. That was during the holiday season in 2014. Thankfully, no one was injured. The family of six knew they wanted to move back onto their property, so with a positive, adventuring attitude, they started exploring ways to make that a reality without going deeply into debt.  This fall, they are organizing a series of Thompson Clan Fundraisers with the goal of purchasing a house that can be moved onto the property.  Their October 3 fundraising event included a yard sale, their delicious homemade cinnamon rolls by the dozen, and with the help of Glenn Norfleet of Fireside Catering of Birthright, they sold pulled pork and brisket sandwiches and plates from a smoker on their lot. When business was slow, they simply held up signs and waved to traffic from the roadside. The public is invited to assist with donations by going online to Go Fund Me or by contacting Glenn Norfleet on Facebook.

Updated Info:  The Thompson’s raised $2,533 today with their efforts.
