The holiday season is here! A Joyous time of the year that most people look forward to but it can be a time of sadness and depression for some of our neighbors who struggle to make ends meet.

This year, your local Food Bank is busy planning and working with the community to reach out to this struggling population.

El Dorado County Announces the Cancellation of the Community Meeting in the Grizzly Flats Area for Tree Mortality on December 15, 2016.  The notice also announced that the same public meeting will be rescheduled in early 2017 but did not give a reason for the delay.  The National Weather Serviced announced a weather warning of extremely high winds at the same time as the meeting had been scheduled.  Such weather conditions often make mountain roads like the one leading to the small mountain community of Grizzly Flats temporally impassable due to fallen trees blocking the roadway.
