On Saturday, Schroon Lake EMS made a post on Facebook calling for support for one of its honorary members, Milt Farbstein, following a fire that destroyed his home. Farbstein’s wife, Suzanne Fremon, died in the fire. Both Schroon Lake residents were longtime members of the community, and this week, their neighbors are working to help Farbstein with whatever comes next. A fundraiser, over $8,000 strong as of Tuesday, was posted following the fire, created by Pastor Lyle Hartwell of Mountainside Bible Chapel. The GoFundMe page is seeking to raise $20,000 or more, in order to help with permanent housing, as well as the cleanup of Farbstein’s former home.
