On Saturday, June 27 2015, 42 volunteers came to Valleyview Drive in the Big Springs neighborhood in Nederland and did lots of great fire mitigation on 2 properties. The weather was perfect and the food was delicious and plentiful. Thanks to everyone who came out. One valuable lesson learned was that watermelon cubes must ALWAYS be handed out at 10:30 am. We want to thank the Americorps volunteers, who have quickly earned themselves some orange shirts! A group from Coal Creek Canyon arrived to help, as did an entourage from Denver. With the many volunteers of Nederland and the neighborhood, this event was extremely successful. Look for Chainsaw Safety classes being offered in Ned in July and then back to a Saws and Slaws event in August!!
