Madison and her 'Thank You' Note

Yesterday, the Ochoco National Forest received a visit from a very sincere and sweet young lady who wanted to show her appreciation to the firefighters for all their hard work in protecting the forest and surrounding communities from so many wildfires.

Madison Faith Kainu, 10 years old, is visiting her grandparents in Prineville and decided to spend part of her summer vacation working on a very special 'thank you' note to give to the firefighters.

Madison was given a tour of the Ochoco Complex Incident Command Post, where she presented her work of art to Incident Commander, Tracy Dunford. She received also received a Smokey Bear bandana, water jug and a glow in the dark wrist bracelet from the Forest Service to remember her visit and in appreciation for her poster and kind thoughts. Acting District Ranger, Penni Borghi thanked Madison as well and posed for a photo.
