St John comes together (again) to support its own

Anyone who has passed by the Post Office or Uncle Joe’s BBQ has, I bet, ‘met’ Russ who manages the information booth.  A couple of weeks ago now Russ was badly injured in an early morning collision.  Russ was in his dinghy which was hit by the Caneel ferry. With broken bones and a severe head injury Russ was transported to the St Thomas hospital and then airlifted to Miami where he continues to be in intensive care.  His St Johnian buddies have rallied to support him and are hosting a benefit sail this coming Friday.  If you are on island it will be a great event – fun and giving to a good cause.  If you are not on-island but would like to help, please check out his Facebook page  and indicate you want to help Russ heal and return to St John! Thanks for caring……
