Market on the Mountain another success!

Hi Everyone,

I’m thrilled to announce that this year’s Market on the Mountain/Garage Sale raised $1164.13 for the AMFD!  The weather was great, the vendors were fabulous and the crowds were big thanks to all the radio promos.  We sold out of hot dogs by noon!  I also wanted to say thanks to the community for coming out and supporting the Market.

I especially wanted to thank Walter Zinowki, Don Hayward, Heather Hayward, Faye Gerry, Elizabeth Dahabieh, Colin Grob and Chase Johnston from SunFM/EZ Rock Radio.  Couldn’t have done it without your help!  Thanks also to the AMFD for supplying tables and the bbq.

Guess we’ll do it again next year – I’ll make sure to buy more hot dogs! 

The lucky winner of the birdhouse draw is Scott Avery, who has a lot on Mule Deer!

Invitation for a FREE FireSmart Assessment of your home

Wildfire season is here again.  How would your house fare in a wildfire?  What can you do to minimize damage and loss?  Contact Walter Zinowki (zinowki@gmail.com) to arrange for a free FireSmart inspection of your property; it is intended to assess what you can do as a homeowner to lessen your vulnerability.  An inspection takes about a ½ to 1 hour to check 16 important factors.  You will receive a written copy of the assessment with suggested action items to pursue.  Remember, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure and the assessment is free!  Check the “Be Ember Prepared” on the FireSmart section on the community website for important information on what a wildfire might mean to your property.
