EDGAR — As Corey Galaway and Ronnie Duncan continue to recover from injuries sustained  during the July 5 explosion at the Aurora Co-op Sedan Grain Terminal, a benefit has been scheduled to help the men’s families.

Duncan remains at St. Elizabeth Regional Medical Center Burn Unit in Lincoln, and Galaway has been moved to Madonna Rehabilitation Center in Lincoln for additional therapy. 

To support and assist them during their long recovery period, residents of the Edgar community and neighboring areas are planning a benefit for them 5-8 p.m. Sept. 21 at the Sandy Creek School on Nebraska Highway 14.  
“There’s been a tremendous outpouring of support and genuine concern and caring,” benefit organizer Pam Maynard said. “We know it’s going to be a long road for them.”
She said it’s possible Galaway could attend the benefit.
