WINNEMUCCA - Friends and church family are hosting a house warming event for the DeSilva family, who lost their home and its entire contents to a fire on Christmas Eve.

The event will be held at First Baptist Church on the corner Fifth in the fellowship hall on Sunday, Jan. 19 at 3 p.m. The family is registered for needed items at Walmart. This is also a "pounding" party, where participants are asked to bring a pound of something: sugar, groceries, clothing, etc.
