Firewise Community Work Day – April 28th

If you are interested in becoming involved, able to volunteer, or need volunteer help to mitigate your property, please contact our ECHPOA Firewise Committee listed below.  On Saturday, April 28th, we will all meet at 9am in the basement of the ECHPOA Building, and develop a plan of action to help our neighbors by participating in a Firewise Community Work Day.  Bring gloves and tools such as saws, rakes, shovels, and weed wackers.  We will break for lunch at noon, pizza, salad, and bottled water will be provided by ECHPOA.  Depending on the weather, we will either eat lunch at the pond or in the ECHPOA Building.  Depending on how much help we have and how much work is needed, additional work days may be scheduled and announced later.  Current ECHPOA members will have priority.  Please let us know if you will be there for lunch so we can plan on enough food.
