PHOTO-ESSAY. 30 years in the making; our first CERT Rodeo. Dave Cosgrave was trained in CERT in 1999. 30 years later we finally are sponsored and look what we can do!
Thanks to CERT, and much loved Facebook “We Love HMB” photographer, Greg Edwards for covering the event.
Tina Ruddy (Dave’s left) is the franchise owner in HMB who made the big donation to Rodeo/BBQ and awarded the Chief his Northern CA Community Hero prize. Tina lives in Livermore but wants to attend Fall CERT with her HMB staff. Corporate Dunkin’ Donuts managed the Northern California contest; this is the first time it was awarded to a winner from HMB. To Dave’s right is his CERT trained daughter Megan.
Learning how to turn off the utilities.
Born and raised local Ellie Angelini, of Table Spoon of Love fame, keeps CERTs fed. The way to a CERT’s heart and soul os through the belly. Well, ok 7:30-12:30, rodeo training is hungrifying work. Thanks to you Ellie! The firefighters have an awfully nice commercial kitchen btw.
BBQ and Pulled Pork Reward Lunch. Thanks to Cynthia Sherill’s organization, and her Southern Hospitality. #foodieheaven :-)
