N95 masks & Fall Fundraising

Gertie is waking up. It's fall and time for our annual fundraising dinner extravaganza and auction. Since we can’t all get together,  alas, to eat and marvel at the auction items we will instead do an online auction.

This year we would like to focus our auction on items from and about Caspar. Be thinking about what you have to contribute to the auction. You could auction a couple of hours of gardening help or other skills, canned goods, musical performance, dinner to be delivered, art work (I’ll be donating my annual Gertie carving). Be creative and come up with something marvelous.

The tentative date for the auction is early November so we will need to know about your donation by mid-October, coming right up. More information and details on how to participate will soon be announced.

Fundraising Meeting: Friday, October 9, noon, in person at the Center. Please wear a mask & bring your own chair if you'd rather not sit at one of our picnic tables. We will spread out at a distance from each other.


N95 masks

Mendocino County Public Health is making N95 masks available to individuals who are having respiratory issues due to the poor air quality from inland fires.  If you're experiencing breathing difficulties from the smoke, you should be wearing an N95 rather than a cloth face mask.

I will be at the Caspar Community Center Thursday and Friday, October 8 and 9, from 4-6 pm with masks for those who need them.  Consider making a short list of the elderly and more vulnerable of your immediate neighbors, and pick up masks for them as well.

Thanks to the Mendocino Children's Fund for making these masks available on the coast!
