February 2017 Cherry Volunteer Fire Association Update from our CVFA President Curt Christy
We have some exciting news for Cherry!
Our CVFA President Elect, Curt Christy, has secured a “new” fire truck for Cherry through his efforts and growing relationship with the Fire Chief Roger Nusbaum of the Walker Volunteer Fire Association. Much thanks to Curt for his work and efforts in obtaining the 1990 Type 6 fire engine for our community .
Special thanks to the Walker Fire Association Board for their generous donation!
This type 6 fire engine will be a huge asset for our community! The smaller truck has several benefits: It is much easier to operate and maintain, and it’s ability to go in areas the larger trucks can’t. It will also allow for a much quicker response time!
Our new Type 6 Fire Engine also has Foam Capabilities!
Yes, we do have a lot to be thankful for in our wonderful community of Cherry!
Thank you Walker Fire Association!
CVFA and the Cherry Community
Dear Residents of Cherry:
We received a letter from “Friends of Verde River Greenway” who have contacted us in order to help in eradicating the invasive “Trees of Heaven” in the Cherry community area. They have announced they will help private property owners in their efforts to remove the following trees and plants: “Tree of Heaven,” Arundo, Salt Cedar, and Russian Olive.
They have worked with the Verde Watershed Restoration Coalition to improve the habitat in that area, but are now wanting to expand to other areas, including Cherry. If you are not familiar with the “Tree of Heaven,” the house next to our property on the west side of us that is overgrown with those trees will give you an idea of how that tree takes over in an area if left unattended. (Our property is just across the street from the local fire department.)
I spoke with Laura Jones, who is the Community Outreach Coordinator, and she would be available to speak with any of you if you have any of these plants on your property and you would like to be rid of them. Her contact information is:
Laura Jones Community Outreach Coordinator 928-451-6860 email@example.com
This is a wonderful opportunity for our community to deal with this invasive tree issue so we need to take advantage of it.
