      Thanks so much for the information Lynda! We’ve added to the web page and posted on Facebook as well. Glad to hear both of your facilities had no damage!

    Hi, Dee, I’m wondering around the Mountain Strong website and realize our Volunteer Fire Department of Big Elk needs listing. By default, do the nonprofits who attended the workshop for the flood anniversary project get added? I’ll get our super duper treasurer Diane Briggle to contact you with the particulars.

    • Dee Robinson says:

      Thanks for pointing that out Donna! We are in the process of updating our list. 🙂 I’ve got BEVFD added to this web listing with a link to your website. Your treasurer can send in the other details to director@epnonprofit.org or submit as part of the Mountain Strong for Nonprofits site development. Thanks again!
