June news from NKF&R

Calling the Class of 2020

We join with the rest of the community in wishing this year’s graduates the very best in their future endeavors. This class has already shown their many impressive qualities — resilience, adaptability, resourcefulness, compassion, creativity and more — by persevering through adverse circumstances that no one could have predicted. We share your sadness that you’re missing all of those senior-year rituals, but we also celebrate that these small disappointments have left you better prepared to deal with the larger challenges of the big world out there. If you’re a Class of 2020 graduate and live in our fire district (Hansville, Gamblewood, Kingston, Jefferson Beach, Indianola, Miller Bay Estates, Suquamish and points in between), send an email to laboda@nkfr.org or call (360)860-8119 to give us your address so our firefighters can send you a little gift. Our members’ have pitched in and are looking forward to supporting local grads and local businesses this way!

Fire danger is on the rise

And we’ll be honest: we’re worried about the combination of canceled summer festivals and events, high fire danger and ignition sources like bonfires and fireworks. People are the most common cause of wildfires that threaten vegetation, homes and lives. We’re hoping you’ll do your part to prevent wildfires by limiting ignition sources — especially as warm and dry weather increases the danger. Check burn ban status on our webpage at www.nkfr.org or by calling the outdoor burn information line at 360-297-4888.
