Thank you, firefighters! Oregon Strong
We have all watched the news and some of us have seen in person the devastation the fires have caused our neighboring communities. It has been heartbreaking to see the loss, but in the mist of this we have seen something beautiful: a community come together and support one another.
Community members are busy gathering donations, manning evacuation centers, digging through their closets and houses for items to help replace what others have lost to the fires. They have opened their houses, their kitchens, and their hearts to neighbors and strangers alike.
Country Meadows Village is proud to be a part of a community that takes care of one another and appreciates the strenuous and daunting work from exhausted firefighters, volunteers and fire officials. Our residents were concerned at the proximity of the fires while we continued to monitor the fires and smoke levels. Our town, community and residents were all protected by the organized command and bravery of our frontline firefighters.
Like everyone else, we are ready for 2020 to settle down and return to normal. Whew! What a year it has been and through it all, we thank and recognize the people keeping us informed, safe and fighting to end disease and fire dangers. Oregon Strong is more than just a phrase, it's what Oregonians are: grit and love for one another.
