Successful Walker Day

Hello my fellow Walkerites,

Cheers to another successful Walker Day. Walker Day is a great time for renewing friendships, making new friends and swapping mountain stories, (that usually end with “and we just barely made it out alive”). We title Walker Day as “A fund raiser”, but, it’s really a community celebration or pseudo block party. Every dollar we get in is just a bonus.

Special thanks to all the usual suspects that automatically show up to lend a big hand at virtually ALL these events. We also had a good number of new faces helping as well. I believe we served 250 lunches, pulled in $1300 from donated yard sale and silent auction items, over $1000 in merchandise sales and $167 form the 50/50 raffle. This year, we added a small art fair in the park that raised around $400.

I’d like to personally thank this years community sponsors like Gene Tomek for once again donating all the food, Conrad Walton for donating all the soft drinks under his company sponsorship, “survivor.com”, and the Walker Community Church for donating all the water, (they meet every Sunday off Sunday School Rd). Corporate sponsors were Trader Joe, Walmart, Fry’s, and Costco. They always give $25-$50 for miscellaneous supplies.  And as always, thanks to the “Guys With Day Jobs” for providing the music!

We will soon set a date for next years Walker Day so you can mark it on your calendars. Hope to see you all again next year.

Bylaw Committee 2014-15

 

The WFPA is reorganizing the bylaws review committee.  Victoria Morhous has agreed to Chair this effort and WFPA Board Member Steve MacIntosh will also be on the committee.   They would like to have anyone interested in participating on the committee contact them no later than July 12,2014.  Carla Keegan and Tim McFarland have already joined the committee.  The first meeting will be July 17. at 9 AM at the Walker fire station conference room.

The charter for the committee from the WFPA Board is to identify confusing and/or conflicting language in the Bylaws (such as the address change made by Yavapai County)

The process will be:

The committee will make recommendation for corrections/changes to the Bylaws to the WFPA Board.

The Board will make any adjustments it thinks are necessary and the proposed changes will be published to the WFPA email list and made available on the WFPA Web site.

WFPA Members will make suggestions about the language in the proposed changes.

The Committee will review the suggested changes make any changes necessary and forward the  new proposal to the BOD and the revised product will again be sent the Membership for review.

If the BOD approves the proposed changes the issue will be placed on the ballot for the annual meeting.

Again, anyone interested in participating in this process as a committee member should contact Victoria Morhous at (928) 443-7406 (vamorhous@gmail.com) or Steve MacIntosh at (623) 434-6924  (smacintosh@q.com)

Thanks much!

Feel free to bring it down to the station Friday the 27th after 5pm or early Saturday am.

HELP needed for Walker Day

Hi Folks,

I am in need of some additional help for Walker Day on June 28th. It’s really is a lot of fun to pitch in for a few hours and get to know a few more of your community members in the process.

I need two more people to assist in setting up and selling at the yard sale. We pull everything we’ve collected out of the old station out back, price it and sell it. It’s pretty straight forward. You can arrive around 7am and be done by 10. Did I mention the free lunch?

I also need a few people help sell tickets at the welcome table and a few more to help sell raffle tickets for the 50/50 drawing. This will be from around 11am-1pm. Again…did I mention the free lunch?

One last thing. Gene Tomek has again, generously offered to sponsor the food for Walker Day, and the Walker community church will sponsor all the water, (of live), for the event. I am still looking for a sponsor for the soda and other beverages at $150. We take these roughly $500 additional contributions and sell them off for about $2000. It’s all profit for the Fire department if it’s all sponsored. If you have considered boosting your financial support for this year, here’s a great way to do it…and sure, lunch is on me.

If you haven’t swept you house for items to donate, grab a box and go for it. Donations have been coming in very slowly for this years yard sale. Any good condition items like household and sporting goods, books, albums, clocks, tables, lamps, chairs, building supplies, tools, coats, etc…We can sell almost any good condition item.

Please contact me if you’d like to pitch in, sponsor the beverages, donate items or make a cake for Walker Day.

Thanks much and I hope to see you all at Walker Day 2014.
