Dear Mr. Regan:
When the Butte Fire broke out on Wednesday, Sept 9th, no one could have predicted how it would grow into the monster that it did. My wife, Meg, and I evacuated from Volcano when the smoke plume behind Pine Grove became so ominous and we were immediately invited to spend the night (including our well-trained Border Collie) at Jackson Gardens. We did so and the staff there were all wonderful in their accommodations and professionalism.
We then spent the next three nights at Oak Manor…again with our dog and with the blessings of Sharon McVickers and what a relief it was to be close to my mother, Ruth Gottstein, as well as safe in Jackson and away from the threat posed to upcountry.
Thank you so much for your kindness in offering family members of the residents in your facilities, a safe haven during this emergency. It was deeply appreciated.
Adam & Meg Gottstein
