SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. – It’s been over a month since the Zogg Fire tore through Shasta County. People in the community are ready to rebuild.
But one of the biggest losses for the area is the Ono Grange.
The Ono Grange was built in the 1930’s and was an important icon to the community. The Zogg Fire destroyed the grange and community members are pulling together. Selling t-shirts and cookbooks, to raise money to rebuild the grange.
“It's our community center,” said Karina Pearson of Ono. “We have weddings, funerals, monthly socials for our community to be able together.”
The loss of the Grange devastated the community because it meant so much to people.
“Another event that the Grange hosts every year that is really important to our community is Ono Santa,” said Pearson.
“We've had a Santa ride in on horseback and come down the mountainside for almost 60 years. That's a big historical significance to our community.”
A fundraising booth is set up in Igo, across the Igo Store. The booth is there every Thursday from 2 p.m. to around 4 p.m.
It's still unknown how much the community will need to rebuild the grange. All proceeds from this fundraiser will go towards the Ono Grange.
