The writers expresses her gratitute for the care the community gave to those fighting the Riverside Fire.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. My son, is on a Hot Shot fire crew that has been fighting the Riverside Fire.

You folks were so kind as to feed and take care of the fire crews. You treated them like royalty, everywhere they went. My son never felt so honored.

This year has been interesting as the Hot Shot crews have not been able to eat as well as other years due to restrictions from COVID-19. Thank You for caring for the fire crews and feeding them so well. They felt terrible to have missed the brisket. Trust me they would have loved to have been there.

Thank you for your hospitality. May God richly bless you.

A very grateful mother.
