From the staff at Menucha:
Subject: RE: gorge fire emergency (9.4.17)
Thank you so much for reaching out to Menucha. For now, Menucha is still OK and being monitored by our staff. I don’t believe there is anything that can be done, except by the dedicated emergency professionals in the area.
Our executive director, Spencer Parkes, released this statement on the Menucha Facebook page at approximately 7:15am this morning.
“Good morning friends. Menucha’s on-site personnel were evacuated during the night and our office is closed today. According to the Corbett Oregon Facebook page, the fire is at Crown Point/Larch Mountain, which is just a few miles from Menucha. Please continue to keep everyone in our area in your prayers. We’ll update as often as we can today.”
We appreciate your prayers and support.
Mary Anne Bidondo for the entire Menucha staff
