In response to the Cache Fire that devastated nearly 60 homes on August 18th, the City of Clearlake in partnership with Cal-OES and North Coast Opportunities (NCO) are providing a workshop on October 4, 2021, to support free lot cleanup and hazardous waste removal. Support will be available on October 4th at Clearlake City Hall.
The Clearlake Oaks-Glenhaven Business Association presented a $2,000 check to the Northshore Fire Fund at their August meeting. The fund is a 501 (c) 3, nonprofit organization created to support the Northshore Fire District. “We know District residents in the 12 towns and communities along the County’s North Shore want and deserve improved services, timely response and better coverage,” said Stilwell. “So, we did some research and decided to form the nonprofit, following the path of other communities with similar challenges.”
The City of Clearlake, in a joint effort with our local partners and state and federal agencies, including California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) will open a Local Assistance Center (LAC) for residents affected by the Cache Fire event. The LAC will be a centralized location where those affected can find assistance and access services.
This pandemic time finds us all in the deep, dark woods, looking for that stream of grace. Yet this stream is trickling right beside each of us in every moment. Grace appears as a neighbor dropping off some fresh vegetables with a post-it note saying, “these are virus-free.” Grace appears as friends in cars, driving by, honking loudly, to wish you a happy birthday, or to celebrate a high-school graduate. Grace appears as a woman offering free masks at the post office, it is senior hours at the local store, and it is you at the sink, washing your hands to protect your household. This pandemic is a call to love that I believe we are answering.
As we come near the possibility of relaxed restrictions of the SIP order, let’s stop for a moment and ask again: What is most important to me? How can I love more?
