The second annual East Verde Park Firewise Day will be held Saturday, Oct. 13 with Jim Paxon, the fire guy, speaking at 1 p.m. at the clubhouse.
You will remember Paxon as the fire guy from the Rodeo-Chediski Fire in June 2002.
He will have his book for sale -- "The Monster Reared His Ugly Head."
Paxon's goal is to teach people to live harmoniously in the forests and woodlands, where Mother Nature uses fire to maintain the forests.
Following Paxon's talk will be a neighborhood barbecue and music. There will be a 50/50 drawing and door prizes.
