Bedford Falls,NY(Press);George Bailey (above in photo) of 320 Sycamore, Bedford Falls, NY saves building and loan from collapse with donations from friends and family in and around the local area. Bailey, 38, acting CEO-CFO of the Bailey Building & Loan (BBL) (Bedford Falls) was about to be taken into federal custody and questioned in the disappearance of monies that could have resulted in the BB&L failure. A former Air Raid Warden, Bailey acquired the family-run business after his father's, Peter Bailey, sudden death. Friends and family came to Bailey's B&L aid after Mrs. (Mary Hatch) Bailey set forth a plea when Bailey and the family car went missing, raising enough money to cover the missing amount. Funds were applied to the loan and charges will not be filed. Bailey, exhausted, bewildered, and over-whelmed by this out-pouring of support, claims help from his blessed friends and guardian angel. Business is to resume normally at BB&L after the Christmas holiday.
For his generosity and philanthropy, we honor Mr. George Bailey of Bedford Falls, NY with this quilt block: the 'George Bailey Star'
