Congratulations Spicewood Fred!

Congratulations to longtime Spicewood resident Fred Paul, on winning the raffle for the guitar autographed by Willie Nelson. Fred’s parents, A.L. (Lee) Paul and Mary Paul, served as EMT’s (Emergency Medical Technicians) in Spicewood years ago. How appropriate for Fred to win it!

And here’s an interesting story on the Willie Nelson signature on the guitar. When Willie went to sign the guitar, a peculiar wrinkle occurred. The pen he had was not working properly when he started to sign, as it wasn’t bright enough on the guitar. He tried to wipe it off, as noted in the above photo. Someone obviously assisted him in replacing the pen. He wrote “Love” over the small smudge, and signed his name underneath it. Thank you Willie!

THANK YOU SPICEWOOD!

What a wonderful evening we enjoyed on September 25 at the Firehouse Feast!

The outpouring of love of each individual that volunteered, donated funds and goods is so appreciated! And a huge thanks to the Spicewood community that came to eat delicious barbecue from Texas Firewalkers and sides from Thundercloud Subs, dance to the music of Kim and her Bad Habits, purchase raffle tickets for an autographed Willie Nelson guitar donated by Musicians Woodshed, and bid on our live and silent auction with donations from local businesses.

One Water Collection System Up and Running!

Water Collection at Station 3

Thanks to all the support from the wonderful community we live in, the purchase and installation of the Water Collection System at Station 3 on Paleface Ranch Road is complete!  Each tank holds 5000 gallons and all the rainwater and dew from the roof of Station 3 will now be collected and used to fill tankers with water during a fire.

We are now going to concentrate on raising the money to put in a similar system at Station 1 on Bee Creek Road.  Willie and Annie Nelson started this campaign off with a thousand dollar donation in 2013.  We are still running our Catch and Match campaign – help us raise money to install the system to CATCH the much needed rainwater from the roofs and MATCH Willie and Annie’s donation!  The support from the community has been very encouraging! The Pedernales Fire Department has three stations, and it would be ideal to have such a system in place at all three stations.

How can you help?  Attend any of our events, either by being a volunteer or by just participating, or by making a tax deductible donation to the PFD Auxiliary (we are a 501c3 organization).  It ALL helps!!!!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
