We will hosting a fundraising event at the Chipolte downtown Colorado Springs on April 5th from 4:00 pm to 8:00pm.  We encourage you to please get this information out to friends and family.  We will be receiving 50% of the proceeds of sales from anyone who orders that mentions CSFD Explorers. I am attaching the flyer for  you to distribute as well.

Thank you again for being flexible. This is just a reminder that we will be having our Station 3 tour this Wednesday night at 19:00 hours to 20:30 hours ( due to the size of the station we are taking 1/2 hour off of the tour). If you should have any questions or concerns, please let us know. Parking is very limited at this station so please plan accordingly. Again thank you for the support of the CSFD

For the period 22 January to 18 February 2017, deposits were made to 45 (that is not a misprint - really there were 45 cards used!) cards totaling $4,803.00. The usage was about triple the number of cards used last month. During this reporting period, we exceeded the cumulative $5,000 deposit threshold, and receive a check for $354.40. For the period of October 2016 thru February 2017, we have accumulated total deposits of $13,550.33. This is a good foundation for the 2017 Awards Banquet. Remember that, if we can get about $70,000 in deposits prior to November, we can entirely fund the 2017 banquet without charging anyone for tickets! We have recorded deposits of about 20% toward that goal at this point. This is certainly a goal that is achievable if everyone uses their card to purchase groceries and fuel.

If anyone has questions regarding how this program works, please call either Marjorie or me and we will explain just how easy it is.

Great job everyone!!!!!

Most of you know we los tone of our own the end of October 2016. Jermaine Frye was a past explorer and a Paramedic/Fire Fighter with Cimmaron Hills Fire Dept. here in Colorado Springs. He left behind a finance' and baby on the way. The baby is due in March and the explorer post thought it would be a great idea to show our support to do a diaper drive and a few other thangs for the baby.

Please no newborn sizes on anything.

Diapers: Loves, Huggies or Pampers we would like varied sizes so they last awhile

Onsies:varied sizes Socks: varied sizes, Soft wash clothes, Burb rags and Bibs
