We can all agree that life is not the same since the Camp Fire tore through Butte County. The Chico Area Interfaith Council is promoting three programs for the Remembrance of the Camp Fire. Please join us and spread the word! Together, we are Butte Strong.
We would love your support in having the citizens of Butte County commence together ....no matter where they are or what they are doing:
WHEREAS: On November 8, 2018, the Camp Fire sparked in Butte County with a loss of over 300,000 acres and approximately 18,800 structures; and WHEREAS: the Camp Fire changed Butte County forever, because 85 lives were lost. 85 souls, who were neighbors, friends and family; and WHEREAS: the citizens of Butte County rose to care for those who were displaced by showing love, understanding and compassion to those in need. The citizens of Butte County united together to feed and clothe those effected; and WHEREAS: On November 8, 2018, Butte County realized the strength and integrity of our First Responders, Emergency Response Teams, Health Humans service organizations, local news, and Animal Rescue Teams; and WHEREAS: the appointed leaders and the leaders by virtue, who rose to care for its citizens, and our North State will be forever changed. Together we are Butte Strong.
Program 1: Template to individualize and share with your group
The Interfaith Council realizes everyone wants to remember November 8 in their own special way and going to an event might not meet your needs. We have made a template for you to pick and choose from and create your own event of any size. We encourage family, neighborhoods, friends and co-workers to continue the healing by remembering this day together. The template includes prayers, poems and songs. It is a compilation of united works that appeal to the religions, spiritual and everyone in between.
