Oct 31, 2015 DMR Community Halloween Party
Okay, this was a fun party. Lots of good neighbors and friends. There was an amazing variety of costumes and some good "Best Pumpkin" entries. We really have to give a
special thanks to Sam, Jim and Ernie who played great music during the party. There are other photos taken by Jan, Janette and Wretha that can be seen on the DMR Community
and Such Face Book page. See you next year!
Training in Fort Davis
On October 23 - 25, eighteen members of the DMR VFD attended the "24th Annual Mile High Academy" in Fort Davis. Our students took a variety of classes to improve their skills
and make our department better prepared to respond to emergency situations. I appreciate all of our members who attended and hope they had as much fun as I did. I want to
thank our friends at the Fort Davis VFD for their support and for making this event a success. I would also like to commend them on the wonderful meals they provided to the
participants. In four months, the Spring Academy will be held in Fort Davis, so plan to attend.

2015 Sept 26 - DMR Community Potluck
What a beautiful day for a Community Potluck Dinner. Thanks for everyone who turned out and brought great food. Special thanks to our band, Robert, Sam, Jim and Ernie and to
Joy for sitting in with the band today.
Sept 9, 2015 - DMPOA Shop Clean-Up
A great group of volunteers gathered at the DMPOA Maintenance Shop and began the long and dirty task of cleaning and organizing it. Toward the end of the day, several shelves
were installed that will hold parts, filters. etc. Each piece of equipment will have it's own area on the shelves. Eddie got the shelves from the old Alco store in Alpine when it closed.
For example, if a part is needed for the dozer, it will be a lot easier to locate that part now. Julian had already cleaned numerous empty oil buckets for future use. A date will e set in
the near future to complete the clean-up and reorganization. If you're just itching to get your hands dirty, this is the place for you. Special thanks to Eddie, Jan, Julian, Chuck!

May 23, 2015 DMRVFD Arts & Crafts Benefit
This event was held to benefit the DMR Volunteer Fire Department. Despite bad weather, the event was a great success. As of May 25, 2015, over
$4,000 had been raised from the benefit and the BBQ dinner provided by B&L BBQ Co. Enough money was raised for the purchase of an emergency propane generator for the fire
department. Thanks to all the artisans that donated works. Thanks also to the DMR Community (non-members & members of the VFD) that donate their time to make it such a
success. In addition the DMR Community, Fort Davis, Alpine, and Marfa contribute Arts & Craft, bake goods and more. It is the area wide generosity that makes it a success.
