First Free Firewise Crowley County Champion Chip
Crowley County Residents: Announcing the First Free Firewise Crowley County Champion Chip
Be at the Fairgrounds on May 2 from 10A.M to 3P.M. to watch rugged county employees chip and transform never-ending piles of your woody waste into fragrant mulch. See them struggle and sweat without swearing. They’re ready and willing, but are they able? Will they last? Will the chipper burn out?
To find out, chip in and bring down a load of trimmings from your trees or shrubs, but nothing bigger than 3 inches in diameter. Its spring cleaning for the outside. The time to prune is before the buds break, but check out www.ext.colostate.edu so you don’t make a mistake. Pare down your pear tree, prune your plum, spruce up those conifers. Cut out the drought black and brown and roll it all down to the Fairgrounds.
Don’t burn it or throw it in the gulch; make these guys turn it into marvelous mulch. Drop off loads on May 1st from 1P.M.to 4P.M. or May 2nd from 10A. M.to 3P.M. when chipping will occur. No commercial loads are permitted. On May 9th and after, wood chips may be picked up North of 9th & Sherman on School grounds (WATH FOR SIGNS). Chipping and chips are absolutely free.
This Champion Chip is sponsored by the National Fire Protection Association and State Farm Insurance. It is supported by the Crowley County Board of Commissioners, Ordway Town Council, Crowley County Volunteer Fire Department, Colorado State Forest Service, Master Forest Stewards, Clean Valley Recycling, and Gillian Hoggard. It’s opposed by termite queens and pregnant mice. For more information, call 468-3837.
