PRAYER REQUEST

This week the park lost one of it’s own.   Judy Marcy lost her battle with cancer.  Please be praying for her husband, John and their family as they deal with this tragedy in their lives.  Pray that the Lord will draw John closer to himself through this loss.

On July 4, 2011, at about 11:30 a.m. about 20 residents of the Ho Ho Kam Village community gathered at the flag pole near the park entrance at 1925 S. Arizona Blvd. in Coolidge to dedicate and raise the American Flag over the park. The flag was a gift through Senator John McCain. The flag had been flown over the nation’s capitol in Washington, D.C. and was raised into place by Steve Flowers and dedicated by Dr. William Perry, chaplain of the Ho Ho Kam Village Community. A certificate of authenticity was presented to Village Manager Jenny Donoghue by Chaplain Bill.

A First Hand View of The Wallow Fire Aftermath

As we headed out into the White Mountain Apache Reservation, at first glance it looked much like the year before with the cattle free to roam fenceless on the open range. As we drove east on AZ 260 out of Pinetop we noticed most of the forest roads were closed.

Heading into Greer, we noticed a trailer designed for the Catastrophe Response Team, still active in the area. As we drove into Greer we could see the destruction from the fire. Burned building…..

as well as burned over forest area.

A temporary restaurant is set up in the area, and now sand bags are being place d around some of the buildings for fear of monsoon flooding.

As we returned to Pinetop/Lakeside, it just about broke our hearts to see the amount of devastation caused by the fire, and this is such a small part of the total devastation.
