Thank you, heroes
Colton Strong is an event set to happen on Oct. 17 to honor the community heroes who kept Colton safe during the recent forest fire storms.
The "where" is still up in the air with two venues offered, but the group is waiting for the okay from the county before announcing the venue (or venues).
The Colton Strong event will include a ceremony to honor all those who helped keep Colton safe. There will be live music, food and beverages, a wonderful raffle, Colton Strong 2020 t-shirts for sale and more.
All proceeds are dedicated to the Colton Rural Fire Department.
There will also be thank-yous offered to the "Red Neck" fire crews and those who helped patrol the streets to keep homes safe.
Check out the details on the organizer's Facebook page Colton Strong or go to the website www.ColtonStrong.org to preorder raffle tickets and t-shirts.
