Plants for Festival

I would like to put out an alert this week to remind people to bring plants for the plant booth at the Festival. Any size, any kind, potted, or not potted. They can be dropped off on any time on Saturday or early Sunday morning before the Festival.
Many thanks, Ann Nichols

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.

Dear Folks,

We put a herd of nine yaks in a pasture at about mile marker 33 in mid-July. They seemed happy there. Alas! they did not appear to be there on Wednesday, August 3. A neighbor reported seeing them on East White Pine on Monday, August 1. They include a bull who looks like a buffalo, several smaller females and 3 or so calves. Most are black; some have white, including one of the babies.

We looked where we could and saw no sign of them. If you see them, please let us know by replying to this email. Or please call us at 970.221.2351.

Thank you,

Karen England

Break-in on Stove Prairie Road

Mrs. Osterlie called me on Saturday to say that their place and their next door neighbors were broken into and burglarized on Friday. They live on the Stove Prairie Road south of the school. I think all of our neighbors should be aware of it and be on the lookout for any strange activity up Rist Canyon and Stove Prairie.

Bear Break In

RCVFD & Community,

We had a bear break into our cabin on MT Ethel. First floor was mostly destroyed. There was no opened food in the cabin. A neighbor had an incident with a bear last year in his 5th wheel.

Found Cat

I have an intact male orange tabby that showed up at my house yesterday and is still hanging out. Wondering if someone is missing him as he doesn't seem feral. If anyone is missing him they can call me at 970-224-3580 and we'll reunited them :)
