Fire Hazard Status Update

Get your chainsaws out! This recent rain has put us back into regular shift. So if you don’t have your firewood in yet, now is the time. As far as burning goes, it’s campfires only. I have included an attachment. Please have a look at it. It defines a safe campfire. Please use common sense as well. I will keep you apprised of any changes.
Thanks, Chad

Campfire ban will be lifted tomorrow, September 19th, at noon.
I will send you the media release when it becomes available. I will be removing signage this week, which will provide more information about what burning is permitted. Please continue to follow safe practices with any activities. I will continue to inform you of any updates.
Thanks, Chad

Fire Hazard Status Update

> Hooray we got some rain! We are now on regular shift for high risk activities. So if you still need to get some firewood cut, now is the time. The burning ban is still in effect. The sun may come out again, and it may still get dry, so let’s continue to use common sense. I hope you have all had a great summer. I will let you know as things change in regards to burning, etc. Thanks, Chad

Wow Wow Wow

 

Thank-you very much to all Mudge Islanders, Family and Friends who came out in strong support of our annual Fire Fest. 

 

You guys rock!!

 

Thank-You to all the tireless volunteers who tended the various areas and made this event possible. 

 

Huge thanks To Brenda Peacock for inviting us onto her property and  for her awesome pirate ship photo booth. 

 

It’s early yet, but I am sure, judging from the community’s generosity and involvement that Mudge Island and MICS had a fantastic Fire-fest 2017. 

 

Thank you all again and stay tuned for the posting of results. 

 

Cheers,

Two Auction Teasers

Just in case you don’t get the Crazy Candy package provided by the Precious family, here’s another option. The Super Soaker package will also be available. See you all on Sunday at the auction.

#2

 

This item is a bit special. Here we have a quilt handmade by Louise German. Louise has made these for us in the past, and has come through for us once again. This lovely neighbour has recently sold her place and will be moving on to the next step in her life journey. She will be missed, but will be remembered. And now you can have a quilt crafted by her. See you all this Sunday at the auction.
