Chipper Day coming June 23rd!

KM & BLM Chipper Day coming soon!

Saturday, June 23, 2018, 8:00 AM 5:00 PM

(and, if needed, also Sunday, June 24)

 

Improve Your Property’s FIRE PREVENTION Chip Those Brush Piles!!

 

All Kennedy Meadows property owners are invited to sign-up. BLM will devote up to one hour of labor with their massive wood chipper to each property owner.

Slag branches need to be stacked in an area accessible to their truck and trailer. The butt end of the branch should face the trailer. Also, designate a direction to blow the produced chips. Leave branches intact as much as possible, as it is easier to pick up a single, large branch to feed the chipper. Branches may be up to 8 inches, but light enough to be held by one man.

Team members from the KMPO&A will visit and review your stack a few days prior to June 23rd, to determine a route and approximate schedule. You must either have someone present or arrange for property access for both the review day and chipping day(s).

Sign-up at the Sunday, May 27th Annual KMPO&A Meeting or by email:

Tom Simon:  kmeadows@earthlink.net   (559-850-4400)

Give your contact info, address or APN, and which days you could be present or arrange for access. Also, consider being a volunteer!

Chipper Day(s) Volunteer Information:

·      A hard day’s work, but ONLY as hard as you want to work, NO pressure, the BLM crew just appreciates any help.

·      Work is dragging or being part of a chain passing the slag to BLM personnel, as they are the only ones allowed to feed the chipper.

·      What to wear/bring and other considerations: Earplugs! BLM will provide the disposable variety if desired.

·      Old long sleeve shirt, and long pants. Clothing should not be “loose."  Expect to take a lot of Pinyon sap home on them.

·      Water, you’ll need it!

·      From a central meeting point, drive yourself, or carpool.

·      Benefits: Community Service!

·      Free Lunch - courtesy of KMPO&A.

·      Get to know some neighbors in a work setting and lending a helping hand.

·      A good night’s sleep from being exhausted.

·      A few days prior to June 23rd, an email will be sent to all volunteers with details of the meeting place and time.

Community Potluck Dinner - everyone's invited!

Hello, Neighbors!  

We have scheduled another KM community wide, everyone is invited, potluck for 5:30pm, Sat., 9/24/16 at the Fire Station.  As always, the food at the last one was incredible. KM has terrific cooks & bakers, but store bought goods are also more than welcome. At the last potluck we had about 40 people show up. Please plan on coming & maybe invite some friends. This is not a KMPO&A event, just old & hopefully new friends getting together.

Thanks to everyone who showed up at 5pm to help set-up &/or stayed after to help put the tables away, it's went so quickly & smoothly. The "many hands" thing really works!

If you have any questions, please contact us through the web site "contact" page.

P.S. We had one camp style chair, left at the last potluck. If it's yours please let me know, otherwise I'll bring it the potluck & hope someone claims it.
