Altona Grange hosted a ‘thank you’ event last night for the firefighters that worked so hard to save so many homes during the Boulder fire. Jenn and I volunteered to help and we had a great time, met a ton of neighbors, and collected donations.
I’m pretty sure the Grange was never meant to house so many people. It was wall-to-wall with likely 300-500 people packed in upstairs and down. Way more than enough food, beer, sodas, and a good amount of donations for both the woman that lost her home and the firefighters fund.
Mostly, people just milled around and said their version of ‘thanks’ to the 50 or so firemen and women that showed up.
