What Does Community Mean?

volulnteer firefighters in ColoradoDuring the Lower North Fork Wildfire, we had firefighters from other states and fire districts come to our assistance. But it wasn’t the “same old same old” here in our mountain community. Our local businesses know what it means to offer a helping hand. Not only did local hotels offer rooms for families which had been displaced, but five restaurants came together and provided 750 meals for the firefighters. Local business people stepped up to serve those who were in the trenches.

One firefighter from Utah said he had never been treated with such kindness and gratitude anywhere else. All we can say is – that’s what the word “community” means to us. It means we’re all in this together. It’s why we call these mountains … home.
