From Margo Marrone – 10:30PM, September 1
Plans are underway to try to put a dumpster in place in Tyson. There is a community meeting scheduled for Sat at 10:00 AM at Tyson Church with some of the Emergency Team. We are hoping to have FEMA forms available at that time. We have bottled water & instant meals that will be distributed & refreshments will be provided.
I just had a conversation with Steve Woods, Executive Director of the Calvin Coolidge Foundation. He was able to go to the Coolidge Homestead & wanted folks to know that it is “pristine” up there. He praised Bill Jenney for vigilantly patrolling the area & making sure that everything is secure. Nancy Yale at Wilder House is feeding local residents & two helicopters dropped off supplies today. Water is being provided through a spigot powered by the generator of the Union Christian Church. Again, everyone is pulling together!
I have just been given word that Hawk personnel have been wonderful during this time, feeding people (with Salvation Army supplies) & checking homes with property management contracts. Even removing food from refrigerators. A volunteer team consisting of Mary Michels, David Dodge, Mike Clarke, Hank Schimpfhauser and Bill & Anne Cherico have been doing exterior inspections at Hawk upon request. More folks taking care of one another!
Lastly, Michelle Stinson of LPCTV would like pics & would appreciate being allowed to take pictures of historic & tragic event. This is not an attempt to be nosy, but to document what has happened…..
