Last years fundraisers included Walker Day, Firefighter Appreciation Day pig roast, pancake breakfasts, dances, merchandise sales and bingo. These all amount to a ton of fun, and paid for about 10% of our annual expenses.
This year’s line-up includes all the same fun activities. Walker Day is scheduled on June 28th and this year we’ve added an Art Fair to the line-up.
Firefighter Appreciation Day/pig roast is on October 4th from 4-6pm.
The Pancake breakfasts are the last Saturday of each month, (April-October, except May and June).
Bingo is held on the last saturday of each month from 4-7 (Except May and June).
Walker merchandise can be purchased at many of these events and the dances should be listed on the Walker website calendar of events at http://walkerfire.org/calendar-of-events/
I hope to see you all at many of these great family outings throughout the year.
Please come to our fundraisers so we can come to your rescue!
Ps. We will soon start collecting items for the Walker Day Yard Sale. Please contact me if you would like to donate household items or would like to help with Walker Day. I can be reached at 928-445-8358

A newsletter has been mailed with details of these Nominees and information about Proxy voting if you can not attend.
Nominations from the floor are permitted as well so come prepared with your questions and nominations!
In addition, Members will be asked to approve or reject a proposed modification to the By-Laws for the WFPA that among some “housekeeping” items, alters the Membership criteria to include an annual membership fee which can be paid separately or as part of a Member’s annual dues.
In the event you can’t make it to the meeting, see page 12 of the WFPA Newsletter for proxy instructions and the form (or download it from the WFPA Website).
The annual potluck lunch will follow the meeting.
Our always delicious annual potluck will be the feature after the vote. Please bring your appetite and special dish to share and delight.

CHECK OUT NEW MERCHANDISE TO INCLUDE WALKER LABEL OLIVE OIL AND VINEGAR
The Forest Service and the County will be implementing Stage 1 starting this Friday April 18.
Under the restrictions, fires, campfires, charcoal, coal and wood stoves are allowed in developed campgrounds only. The restrictions also limit smoking to within enclosed vehicles or buildings or in developed campgrounds. Using a device that is solely fueled by liquid petroleum or LPG fuels that can be turned on and off is allowed in areas that are clear of flammable materials.
Implementation of fire restrictions is especially important this year given the dry winter and impacts of long-term drought on the forests. Criteria used to determine when to implement fire restrictions include current and predicted weather, fuel moisture, fire activity levels and available firefighting resources. Fire restrictions will remain in effect until the forests receive significant precipitation.
With the recent fires, this is a great service that you may want to check out!
Yavapai County’s Emergency Notification System (ENS) can notify you on your cell, landline…
Last year’s Chronicle ran this announcement and we have since had some Members ask for the information again. The Yavapai County Sherriff’s Office announced the new ENS in July 2012 with an ever easy way to register your contact phone numbers and property loca-tions in Yavapai County. Look for the “emergency notification” tab at www.ycsoaz.gov, follow the prompts for your opt-in registration and preferred phone number, contact method (email, text, voice…), and enter your property address. The site will convert the address to GPS coordinates automatically and will confirm registration once saved. You should note that all Yavapai County published residential and business landline phone numbers are automatically included in the database, registering with the site will permit you to add additional contact methods (cell phones). For more information, see the site at www.ycsoaz.gov.
