Beaver Brook creates fire recovery fund

In response to our posting of the recent fire at Beaver Brook, we have received many messages sent expressing your sadness for our loss of the sheds and equipment.

Thank you for your concern. Six snow plows, a sander, a chipper, a snow bucket, two harrows, three boats and three mowers are among the list of items destroyed by the fire, which is still under investigation.

While we hope that insurance will cover some of our loss, our settlement will be significantly less than the replacement costs of the sheds, the equipment and the security enhancements that will need to be made. Because of that, we have started a Fire Recovery Fund and designated tax-deductible donations will be earmarked for that purpose. Donations may be made at www.beaverbrook.org or via check.

The acquisition of winter equipment isn’t as urgent; however, the summer items need to be replaced soon.

The Beaver Brook Association thanks you for your loyal support, both moral and financial, as we move forward from this unfortunate incident.
