The Hive

a Butte Fire Recovery Center

a 501(c)(3)

Susan Galvan, President of the Mountain Ranch Community Club, hosted a "Community Conversation." The conversation was a gathering of residents from District 2 in Calaveras County (all of which was effected most severely by the fire.) We discussed where we have been, where we are, and where we want to go at this point (almost 2 years) after the fire. As a result, several paths to recovery have formed.

The Hive has volunteered to host a morning meeting space, Coffee with Friends, at the Mountain Ranch Youth Alliance and Resource Center (we are there on the 2nd and 4th Thursday). Come join the fun and have a treat, coffee, or tea...or all three.... every Thursday from 8:00 to 11:00 a.m..


The Hive is also taking a cooperative role with two other paths: Communication and Services. We are hoping to improve not only technical communications but creating a system to get information out to community members in a broader way, reaching much farther than digital media can reach. We are also courting services outside our area to see the value in our future and to bring their offerings to District 2.

From the conception of The Hive: a Butte Fire Recovery Center, it has been our intention to create a volunteer corps. The Hive has committed to the Community Conversation and rebuilding efforts by creating a volunteer corps that serves those who need help as well as those who give help through volunteering.
