Our Chapter in Action


We had a great time at this year's RAP session with CDPH on May 24. Pictured here: Redwood Empire CAHF chapter officers Cheryl Cole, Treasurer; Michael Raffee, Education & Associate Chair and Georgia Otterson, President; Dana Forney, CDPH District Manager 1 and staff. 

On December 7, Redwood Empire CAHF Chapter Treasurer Cheryl Cole presented a check for $2,000 on behalf of its members to Sean Anderson, Manager of the Windsor Redwood Credit Union.

The Redwood Credit Union will ensure 100% of this donation find its way to victims of the destructive October firestorms in Sonoma, Lake, Napa, and Mendocino Counties.



It was a very moving time for the chapter and the community at large, but also an opportunity to express hope in future rebuilding efforts in the region.
