530 Slide

You all know of the tragedy that happen to the community of Darrington and Oso, Saturday the 22nd. The 530 slide  took the lives of wonderful people and done so much damage.  The community has  lost  family members, homes and animals. Darrington Horse Owners Association/Darrington Timberbowl Rodeo have opened their doors for our community residents to place there RV's, vehicles and animals, equipment and anything else needing a safe place. We have space for horses and cattle we do have on the grounds a  pet food bank, also hay and grain for the people of the community that are in need to feed their animals  and livestock affected by the slide, since there is not a feed store outlet in town and the drive is so far away. This is to make it one less stress on the community residents,  so if you wish to donate supplies for the animals or funds you can contact Margie Bates @ 360-391-3417. We want everybody to know any funds or supplies left over after helping the animals will be donated to the victims of both communities.  We are humbled by the amount of donations and help coming in and we thank each and every person and group helping, this is gonna be a long haul and its nice to see the human spirit coming together for such a tragedy.
