The Ride Academy has begun and the Explorers are getting great instruction as well as hands on training! Thank you for your support during this time. Please understand the dynamic of what we are doing with your Explorers. We do have scheduled times and we are doing our best to get the Explorers out on time but if a class runs a few mintues late or we might get done early, please bare with us. We try to stick to the schedule the best we can. We want your Explorer to get the most out of their time during this academy.

A few notes for this week pertaining to the parents and times for you to come and observe your Explorer in action during the Ride Academy:

06/20/18 Wednesday Night will be the Propane Burn at the FDC. We are asking parents to arrive at 7:00 pm. This will be down out behind the training tower. You are welcome to come and take pictures. We will also be doing a face book live during this time so if you are not able to make it then please join us there!

06/21/18 Thursday Night will be College Career Night at the FDC. We will be starting promptly at 7:00 pm. This is a great opportunity to come and see the different agencies that are available to promote continued education and job opportunities for your Explorers. Even if you are not attending the Ride Academy we would still like for you to come and participate.

06/23/18 Saturday - Final Day of Academy and BBQ - We are asking families to please come out at 9:30 am at the FDC to watch your Explorer again with things they are learning in the Explorer program. We will be eating at Noon and live burn to follow lunch. It is a great time and we look forward to all attending.

Going into next week we have an awesome opportunity for a fundraiser during the 2018 US Senior Open at The Broadmoor. The Explorers will be helping with parking. It will be the following dates:

06/25/18 - From 6:00 am to 2:00 pm - We need 7 Explorers 06/26/18 - From 6:00 am to 2:00 pm - We need 8 Explorers 06/27/18 - From 6:00 am to 2:00 pm - We need 9 Explorers 06/28/18 - From 6:00 am to 2:00 pm - We need 10 Explorers 06/29/18 - From 6:00 am to 2:00 pm - We need 12 Explorers 06/30/18 - From 6:00 am to 2:00 pm - We need 12 Explorers 07/01/18 - From 6:00 am to 2:00 pm - We need 12 Explorers

The Lead for this Event is Bailey Horton. Please make sure to contact her if you are able to participate any of these days. In years past when we were asked to do this we were able to generate $ 3000 in donations from this fundraiser. This would be awesome to go towards things the Explorers are wanting to do in their budget.

We can not thank you enough for the continued support of your Explorer and this post! We appreciate all of you for allowing your Explorer to be a part of this great program and we can see how they are growing from their experiences too! If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to reach out to us.

Thanks, Shannon Jantzen CSFD Fire Explorer Post 1894
