November comes creeping in on damp sneakers. As I write this, there has been a touch of rain. By the time you read this, if we’re lucky there’s been a bit more, and the hills of the dairy belt will have begun sprouting their lush winter coat of green. I’m saying here and now that our change of season colors can stand up to anything in lovely New England, history or no.

October is here, and with it we fervently hope the rainstorms that will put an end to another California fire season.  Camp Meeker has (knock on redwood) made it through another fire season, in no small thanks to the hard work of our Volunteer Fire Department.  For the past seven years, the Camp Meeker VFD has been ably led by Fire Chief Tim Williams, but as of now there’s a new sheriff in town.

Wow, August already? This summer is FLYING by. You know what else is flying by? Cars. Cars are flying by on the newly smooth surface of Bohemian Highway. Like buttah, it is.

Francis Thompson was an English poet and mystic, but for a fleeting moment I imagine he penned those words while looking up at the Camp Meeker Tower on a July afternoon.
