At our first meeting with the new Council, we had a request to host a pot luck supper for the community to bring everyone together after the horrific week we’ve had, to enjoy some fellowship and give thanks to all that worked so tirelessly. Council has set Tuesday October 24th 6:00 pm in the community hall for a potluck supper. This is a chance to share your experiences, your fears, and lessons learned with one and other, and move forward as a community. Please spread the word with those that you see. This is an opportunity to discuss ways in which we might be able to help some of our neighbors who have lost so much.
After the traumatic event of the fire, the losses of property and animals, the scare with the evacuation, often we are left with anxiety. There are many groups or services that can help.
I have attached some links put together by Special Areas after the Bindloss fire. Please reach out for help, talk to someone.
