CAC RELIEF RESPONSE TO POCAHONTAS,AR.
« on: May 08, 2017, 08:18:34 AM »
Thanks to your caring and your contributions CAC was able to respond to an emergency shelter in Pocahontas and deliver over $500.00 of emergency supplies they requested.

After extremely heavy rains, 9 levees on the Black river suffered failures, 3 of which were declared "major".  Units of the AR National Guard were activated because their vehicles are "high water" vehicles and were used in evacuations and other service.  Finally on 06 May, we were able to navigate to Pocahontas (despite several detours) and make the delivery.

Check our F/B page and the Pocahontas Flooding 2017 F/B page for photos and additional info.

You make it possible.  Thank you!

Great work and an ATTABOY to all involved.
Stop complaining about life and start Celebrating it .

I've reached the age where there is little left to learn the hard way.

If you had only one year,one month,or one day...Would you live your life differently?

Radios are pointless without someone trained to use them.

OIL LADY'S DEFINITION OF A PREPPER: A prepper is someone who takes advantage of the monetary freedom offered by good economic conditions of non-wartime prosperity to stockpile for himself readily available supplies and equipment of a lifestyle-supporting nature. He specifically chooses to engage in such stockpiling during easy economic times so that when bad economic times eventually cycle around again, he will be prepared to engage in the self-preserving undertaking of riding out a lengthy period of scarcity of those same supplies and equipment without harming others in the process. The goal of the prepper is to be fully self-sufficient at all times --good times and bad-- without breaking laws or causing harm to others.
