Fawnskin Events This Week

I hope that you all had a great weekend.

For the first time in a very long time, I had a PJ day and just snugged down and watched movies on Sunday.

Although, I have to admit, I volunteered a couple of hours to help someone I know with an online issue but it was nice to have a day off–when you work from home it is hard to not work every day because there is always something to be done.

Habitat for Humanity Taco Fundraiser (Reminder)
Just a reminder that today is the Big Bear Valley Habitat for Humanity $1 Taco event at the Sonora Cantina. All proceeds from the sale of $1 tacos will be dedicated to buying materials for constructing a new home. This is an all-day event, so feel free to drop by for lunch, dinner or a mid-afternoon snack.

Sonora Cantina is located at 41144 Big Bear Blvd., in Big Bear Lake. For those of you cannot make it that day, the Sonora Cantina will donate to Habitat for any $1 tacos purchased on Tuesday, May 11-13, 2010 just tell your server that the $1 taco purchases are for Habitat.

NSIA Potluck Tonight
The North Shore Improvement Association’s monthly potluck is tonight at the Old Miller Park School House. The potluck begins at 6:00pm but the group is now suggesting people come to socialize and setup at 5:30pm. Tonight the speaker will discuss backup generator options. The Old Miller School House is located on Chickasaw.

Town Clean Up May 15, 2010 9m-3pm
Candy Calkins Hallstead is once again bringing in dumpsters for the annual Fawnskin Clean-Up as a service for all of the community. You can take your yard debris and other items down behind the Fawn Lodge anytime between 9m and 3pm or until the dumpsters are full.

In addition, NSIA is going to piggy-back on her generosity and is calling for volunteers to help clean-up the town during Candy’s event. Show up with gloves, rakes, brooms, etc. More details are posted on the board at the Fawnskin Post Office.

Carbon Monoxide Detectors Required

The state of California will soon require carbon monoxide detectors in homes and rentals.

A Carbon Monoxide alarm or CO alarm warns of a potential poisoning risk. CO detectors will need to be installed in existing single-family residences that have a fossil-fuel burning appliance, fireplace or attached garage by mid-2011. All other homes, including rentals, must have the alarm devices in place by January 1, 2013.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that accidental carbon monoxide poisoning kills 400 people in the the United States annually.

    Carbon Monoxide is CO. Carbon Dioxide is known as CO2.
    CO2 will displace oxygen but is not Toxic. (Same stuff that fizzes in our sodas). CO is toxic and a common byproduct of incomplete combustion of hydrocarbons (natural gas etc.) The detectors we install in our homes are designed to sense and alarm in the presence of Carbon Monoxide, CO.
