What an amazing community we live in!
When word got out that Pine Strawberry Fuel Reduction was beginning to experience financial concerns due to the overwhelming response to the brush pickup, a small group of residents decided to step up and put on a fundraiser. Then the community got behind the effort, contributed to this super fun event and ended up raising more than $10,000.
Pine Strawberry Fuel Reduction would like to make sure that each and every person who worked to make this event successful knows how very much they are appreciated. Special thanks to Darwin and Barbara Huber, to Chuck and Barb Casey and the Trouble in Paradise band, to Bill and Shari Ahrendt and all the wonderfully talented artists who donated their work to auction, to our awesome businesses who donated such great raffle items and to all the dedicated and tireless volunteers who are always there when there’s work to be done.
And, of course, to the amazing residents of Pine and Strawberry who turned out in record numbers to help us in this effort to protect ourselves and our neighbors from the threat of wildfire.
Thank you all so much!
Janet Brandt, Pine Strawberry Fuel Reduction Board
