Apache Creek Fire Aware­ness

Catron Courier - - Front Page - by Apache Creek VFD

We hosted our An­nual Fire Aware­ness/Hal­loween Party and would like to thank ev­ery­one for com­ing out and show­ing sup­port. The kids had a blast and ev­ery­one ate well. Shout outs to the Ca­tron County fire de­part­ments who came out and sup­ported the event—it was nice to have Que­mado VFD and Pie Town VFD join us.

Spe­cial thanks to our County Man­ager Kate Fletcher for com­ing out and cook­ing up the burg­ers. Thanks to Sher Brown who is a part of Que­mado VFD, she helped out tremen­dously and added lots of laughs by bring­ing Sparky the Fire Dog. It was nice to see ev­ery­one and equally as nice to see the mem­bers of our fire fam­ily come to­gether as one team. To­gether we main­tain unity and have fun and ex­cite­ment.

We Value Your Do­na­tions!

We would like to thank Jimbo Wil­liams at AG Propane for their gen­er­ous do­na­tion of match­ing the do­na­tion amount and for also be­ing in­volved with our Ju­nior Fire­fighter Pro­gram. Thanks to all of you who do­nated to our cause, your par­tic­i­pa­tion and con­tri­bu­tions are greatly ap­pre­ci­ated, in turn al­lows us to make these events pos­si­ble.

We ask why has it been ex­tremely hard to get kids in­volved with the Ju­nior Fire­fighter Pro­gram.

The pro­gram has so much to of­fer, not to men­tion the hands on tasks you learn to build con­fi­dence and self-es­teem. It also of­fers the op­por­tu­nity to show fu­ture em­ploy­ers just how re­spon­si­ble you are. The ex­tra added bonus: it looks great on a job or col­lege ap­pli­ca­tion!
