FAIRFIELD — People in rural communities will go to great lengths to help their neighbors in need.

That was a message repeated over and over again by individuals connected to the benefit Saturday evening at the Sandy Creek School outside of Fairfield along Nebraska Highway 14. The event helped Ronnie Duncan of Edgar and Corey Galaway of rural Edgar and their families with short-term expenses following the July 5 explosion at the Aurora Coop Grain Terminal at Sedan, which injured the two men.

"I lived in big cities when I was about his age," Corey's father Larry Galaway said. "The guy next door, sometimes you didn't know him. I don't know what would've happened if something like this happened to someone living in a big city."
