Disaster recovery funding

The 2nd round of disaster recovery funding is available to farmers and ranchers who have an agricultural business that was impacted by the 2012 and 2013 fires or flood.

We have already assisted over 50 farmers through round 1 by helping them with disaster recovery projects like building barns, installing new fences, cleaning out irrigation ponds, land leveling and debris removal. We've also assisted them in purchasing equipment that is needed to help with their daily business operations or paying for operational costs.

I'd be happy to send you more information on the grant if you can assist us. Or if there's someone else that might be a good reference, I'm happy to contact them directly. I've included the link below if you are interested in learning more about the grant itself.

The application deadline is Friday, January 20th so please let me know if I can send you an email with more details. Thank you!

Colorado Gives day

Colorado Gives Day is just around the corner. We are hoping to raise funds this year to keep the Rist Canyon Volunteer Fire Dept growing for the next 20 years and beyond! You can donate anytime, or on December 6, but why wait for the holiday rush! It's also a great way to gift to that person who has everything. Feel free to visit the web site anytime. And share with your friends!

Colorado Gives Day

I know we are all being stalked by our favorite non-profits about Colorado Gives Day next Tuesday (December 6th). However, RCVFD is now included in that event & I wanted to make sure you were all aware of that. I would encourage you to use all of your networks to let your friends, relatives & neighbors know that RCVFD is now an option in their giving choices for Colorado Gives Day. As a department that relies totally on the generosity of our donors, this opens up our avenues for donations to a wider audience - we just have to make sure they know about it. This is our first year, but could become a significant source of income for the Department. Thanks for helping to spread the word.

Thanks & Adios, CJD

Mountain Lions in Lower Canyon

Over the past month, we've had multiple mountain lion (4) sightings in the lower Canyon area (mouth of Canyon to Davis Ranch). On Tuesday evening (November 29th) around 7pm, two lions were seen in the road at the entrance to the Canyon (right by Cloudy Pass subdivision).

These are adult sized lions. Just a note to remind us all we share these mountains and forests with wildlife.

Dog found

We found a dog that would really like to go home to his owners (found on our property on Fire Rte 3)? He is a neutered male, about 30 ish pounds. Looks like a boarder collie/aussie/pit cross. Black and white with some brown on the legs. Sweet attitude. No tags, but has a black collar with "Top Dog" on the buckle. Our number is 970 224 3734
Thanks

Fire Restrictions Extended

Current fire restrictions (which were set to expire the end of this month) have been extended by the Board of County Commissioners until at least September 15th. Although we have gotten a little moisture, fuel conditions are still dry. The Hertha Ridge fire near Carter Lake showed us that fires can move quickly under current conditions.

Festival Bake Sale

It is that time of year again when we are all thinking about what we can do to support our fabulous RCVFD.

The Bake Sale Tent at the festival NEEDS your yummy baked donations! PIES are always the biggest hit and the most in demand. Brownies, cookies, cupcakes, and bars are also in great sellers. It is always helpful if items are packaged ready to sell. It is also helpful if ingredients are listed especially if they have high allergy potential ie: nuts.

Last year we had almost 40 pies and sold out before the festival was over!! Baking to support the RCVFD is a wonderful way to involve the entire family.

We appreciate any and all donations and thank you in advance for your ongoing support.

If you have any questions or would like to volunteer some time please don't hesitate to contact me. The day of the festival I will be at the bake sale tent by 8 am.
