Thanksgiving is the peak day for home cooking fires. The average number of home fires on Thanksgiving Day is normally double the average number of fires in homes on any other day! Stay safe by incorporating these tips and safe habits: Stay in the kitchen when you are cooking – frying, broiling, or boiling. Set a timer to remind you to check on your cooking!

You say to a brick, ‘What do you want, brick?’ And brick says to you, ‘I like an arch.’ And you say to brick, ‘Look, I want one, too, but arches are expensive and I can use a concrete lintel.’ And then you say: ‘What do you think of that, brick?’ Brick says: ‘I like an arch.’
The Kingfield Neighborhood Association (KFNA) is building an outdoor bread/pizza oven on rented land adjacent to our Pleasant Community Garden as a way to further build community in our neighborhood! Essentially creating a new community gathering location, the oven will be used for regular public events hosted by KFNA that bring neighbors together to share food, learn new skills, and build connections to each other.
We are fundraising at only $10 per brick! If each brick (1100) has a donor we will meet our $11,000 goal! All funds raised through this campaign will be used to cover the material cost of the structure (close to $7000 in cement, insulation, lumber, and brick), to provide our on-site coordinator with a stipend for leading the project, to purchase tools for the oven, and (if we meet our goal) to plan for service counters to be added to the oven area next summer to serve as public gathering spaces and classroom space.

PLUS hear from KFNA’s Project Organizer Cheryl DeGroff talking about current crime rates and changes over the last few years. Discussion will include how KFNA can support neighbors best related to crime in the community including the role social media plays in informing people of crime trends, but possibly also heightening fear and creating a perception that crime rates are on the rise.
