Lost dog

Our 3-year-old black and tan coon hound, Fred Turbo, got away from me last Wednesday 9/20. He should have a collar on and he has been micro-chipped. We are located at the mouth of the canyon and he could easily travel up. If you have seen him, please call.

Festival Bake Sale: Baked Goods Needed

The Bake Sale Tent needs PIES and any other baked goods you would like to donate. Every year our hope is to exceed the number of pies donated the prior year. Last year we had over 50 pies donated. Baking is an easy way to get your entire family involved in helping our fabulous RCVFD. Pies are always the favorite but we get lots of requests for cookies, cakes, breads, brownies etc. It is best to package items in sellable amounts ie: 1/2 dozen cookies. It is also very helpful if ingredients such as nuts, dairy or gluten free are listed.

Thank you in advance for helping making this year's festival a great success. I will be at the fair grounds by 7:30 the morning of the festival. Please drop off your yummy bake sale items any time.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

We found a puppy yesterday by MM7-MM8 on Rist Canyon Road. 4-6 month old Fixed male German Shepard mix mostly black with brown legs, the tail is also cropped and he is not chipped.

Smokey Correction

Correction to our previous message about needing volunteers: we need volunteers to wear the Smokey costume for 30 minutes each during the festival. You will be the star of the festival for 30 short minutes, and a firefighter will escort you.

Thanks again!
